During a cryogenics test, a pilot frozen in 1939 awakes in 1992 but time is running out, as his body starts to age rapidly.
One of Mel Gibson's suggestions for director of the picture was Sydney Pollack. John McTiernan was also in the running, but ultimately the producers felt that they could not afford him.
Are you Nat Cooper?
Nat Cooper: It's the dead guy!
Felix: It's the dead guy!
Someone knew Daniel was around somewhere. When an aging Daniel shows up at Harry's daughter's house she recognizes his name. As she never had seen him her only knowledge of him had to come from her mother, Harry's wife or Helen who knew Harry's wife and is pictured with Harry's daughter at age 2. When Helen came out of her coma she would have wondered where Daniel was. Even if they didn't know precisely that Daniel had gone cryogenic on them you would figure a vast search would have been conducted with Helen as a driving force his fiancee and childhood friend. As Daniel said she knew about the project and would have had the base thoroughly searched for Daniel.
