Trivia Edit

The scene of the boat going to the Island is the same footage of the SS Minnow in the 2nd and 3rd seasons of the comedy series Gilligan's Island.

The theme of a phantom dog haunting a heir is borrowed from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's story The Hound of the Baskervilles.

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit

The caretaker of the Island is killed by Calender's thugs in the beginning teaser-in fact almost practically under the eyes of Agent West as he steps ashore...yet in the dinner scene later it is remarked that the caretaker had "disappeared" months before.
