  • Notes

    • According to Peter Lupus, almost immediately after he was hauled back on board after cramping up in the cold water, the Navy sharpshooters on board spotted sharks. The director, Martinson, still needed a shot of Willy swimming away, but the stunt man, understandably, did not think much of the idea. The director then "accidentally" bumped into the stuntman and knocked him overboard, and more or less said, "As long as you're in there..." The man was promised a bonus (whether he got it or not is anyone's guess). The sharks kept their distance, and the shot was made successfully.
