Trivia / The Perfect Storm

  • Name's the Same: For some unknown amount of time one of the "goofs" listed on the IMDB called the boat the Andrea Doria instead of the Andrea Gail. An understandable mistake as they are both doomed ocean-going craft that start with "Andrea" and later sank.
  • Michael Ironside so greatly resembled the real-life character he portrayed (Bob Brown, owner of the Andrea Gail and her sister boat, the Hannah Boden) that, during the film's production, he was visited by a man who was looking to finish paying off a debt he'd long owed to Brown. The man in question didn't know that the real Bob Brown had passed away in 1998, over a year before the film's production started.
