Trivia

Brad Pitt was criticised for casting himself in a brief heroic role. Pitt claimed that he did not insist on being cast in the part, and it was easier to secure funding for the picture if he was in it.

Goofs

When "Platt" is explaining how to bring the logs down the river, the overseer scornfully asks him where he became an expert in engineering and "terraforming." This a word coined by science fiction author Jack Williamson in 1942, almost exactly 100 years after the scene takes place.
