American Visionary Artist Norbert Kox fell into the role of Ernest Hemingway in the film, perhaps destined for the part.
Although he is known by many as Mr. Noah, ever since his first visit to Bimini several Island residents had taken to calling him Papa Hemingway, due to the striking resemblance.

On the Island of Bimini, Ernest Hemingway offered the prize of a crisp new US $100 bill to any native who could last three rounds in the ring with him. The challenge was first taken up by Willard Saunders, Herman (aka Ermie) Butler, and John Duncombe. None of them made it the full three rounds and over the years the prize was never collected by any Biminite.
