Trivia

For those who are unfamiliar with British currency of pre-1971: At c.52 minutes the taxi driver's fare was 14 shillings and sixpence. He was given a one pound note and told to keep the change. This was an extraordinarily generous tip. In decimal terms, the driver's fare was 72.5p and his "tip" was therefore 27.5p - and this explains his surprised reaction. See more »

Portman is no swordsman
16 February 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

\this film contains what must be the most ineptly staged and photographed sword fight in cinematic history.Portman and McLaughlin seem as if they have never picked up a sword in their lives.The camera man tries to make it look it exciting but nothing can hide the sheer ineptitude.The film starts in the 18th century and then fast forwards 150 years which is when the film really begins.Gordon Harker as usual plays a policeman and so you know very much what to expect.The story is poorly developed and it is really only held together by the two leads.It is not by any means boring but it does rather leave you scratching your head wondering what it is all about.It is still available on video.
