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.
