The film featured two actors who had played villains in the James Bond film franchise. Geoffrey Holder had played Baron Samedi in Live and Let Die (1973) whilst Robert Shaw had been Red Grant in From Russia with Love (1963). Ironically, Shaw's character in 'Swashbuckler' was similarly named to his Bond villain, it being the fictional "Red" Ned Lynch. See more »
When Nick and Ned are having their limerick competition, Nick uses the word 'Khaki'. This word is from the Hindustani language and only entered in the English language in the 1840s, through the British Army in India. Given 'Swashbuckler' is set in the 1700s, he could not have known the word. See more »
I LOVE this movie. I don't care how terrible critics might think it is. It's fun, romantic, entertaining, an old fashioned yarn. It came out right after Robert Shaw made a "splash" in Jaws, and he's fabulous as usual. Don't let them make you feel guilty about loving this movie. It's great.
