In the Book In the Movie
   Eddie's parents and sister borrowed money to go to Calgary to watch Eddie compete. Eddie's parents watched him on TV in England.
   A press agent wrote "Eagle" on Eddie's helmet. Coach Bronson writes it.
   Today newspaper offered Eddie $10,000 for a photo of him with his girl friend, but he turned them down because of a news blackout he agreed to. No girl friend, no news blackout on Eddie.
   Eddie had many 90 meter jumps and never hesitated. Eddie is shown to hesitate for a long time at the 90 meter jump; as it was his first time on the 90 meter ramp.
   After the 90 meter jump and prior to the closing ceremony Eddie appeared on the Tonight Show where he met Burt Reynolds. Did not happen.
