Notes & scribbles
- Thankfully not short for The Heroes of Telemarketing.
- Norwegian resistance vs Nazis trying to build an atomic bomb.
- Douglas plays a Norwegian with an American accent.
- Harris plays a Norwegian with an Irish accent.
- These mean they used their own accents, not that the Norwegians had them.
- Based on two books! A memoir, ‘Skis Against The Atom’ (1954) by Knut Haukelid, and a novel, ‘But For These Men’ (1962) by John Drummond
- Harris played Knut in the film.
