The school rugby scenes with Emile (Paul Spurrier), were shot over a period of two days at Marble Hill Park in Twickenham. The schoolboy extras were from Teddington Boys School, a comprehensive school. The badge on the Paul's blazer is that of the school. During the scene several boys were picked to pass ball with Paul. They were picked because they were the shortest and best matched his height. See more »

It is not often a producer has the chance to thank his critics in this form. I do so now. The blood-sweat and tears that went into the making of THE WILD GEESE is all forgotten. Appreciation of one's endeavors of some 25 years ago, thanks to DVD, is gratefully received. The Zone 1 version is yet to appear, the lateness due to sloppy distribution. To answer questions about the film's very limited theatrical release in the United States and Canada in 1978, this was due solely to the financial collapse of its distributor, Allied Artists. Chapter II was applied and, to my disgust, it failed to reach many theaters. However, the NBC Network and HBO aired the movie with great success. Euan Lloyd.
