Catch The Perfect Storm tonight 11p.

Wolfgang Petersen’s nautical disaster drama is based on a true story – we all know that. But there are tales that remain untold about the massive 1991 nor’easter, and here are 7 of them.

7. Linda Greenwall Is the Only Female Swordboat Captain in Gloucester

As played by Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Linda Greenwall is the last person to talk to the crew of the Andrea Gail. The real Greenwall went back out on the water after the storm and continues to be the only woman plying the waves in Gloucester port.

6. Michael Ironside Was a Dead Ringer for Bob Brown

Ironside, who plays ship’s owner Bob Brown, resembled the real Brown so closely that a man visited the set and tried to pay off a debt to him – unaware that Brown had died in 1998, a year before the movie started filming.

5. A Restaurant Bought the Boat

Legal Seafood, a Boston-area eatery with a perplexing name, purchased the boat used in the filming of the movie and established it as a memorial for sailors lost at sea until it was damaged by a fire.

4. No Real Fish Were Used in the Movie
