Picture Trivia
       Do you know that the film The Hunt for Red October (1990), starring Sean Connery (as Soviet submarine captain Marko Ramius) and Alec Baldwin (as CIA analyst Jack Ryan), was based on the novel of the same title authored by Tom Clancy in 1984? It is in this novel that Clancy started his rise to fame, especially when former U.S. President Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) said he liked reading the novel and even called it “unputdown-able.”
       Do you also know the verse and chapter of the Bible passage that Ivan Putin (played Peter Firth) quoted at the start of the film? It is from Revelation 16:16-17, which narrates about Armageddon.
First edition (1984) of the novel
1The Hunt for Red October
by Tom Clancy.
       In 1991, when the film was released in VHS format, the color of the tape was red.
       The director of The Hunt for Red October, John McTiernan, is also the director of Die Hard (1988) that starred Bruce Willis. Because of McTiernan’s obligation to The Hunt for Red October, he passed the opportunity of directing the sequel of the Willis starrer Die Hard II (1990).
