Did You Know?
In the film's source novel "Headlong" by Emlyn Williams
, the Ralph Jones (John Goodman
) character was known as Jack Green, becoming King John II instead of King Ralph. The character of private secretary Sir Cedric Charles Willingham (Peter O'Toole
) was known as William "Willie" Millingham in the book whilst the character of cabinet secretary Lord Percival Graves (John Hurt
) was called in the novel Sir Godwin Rodd, and nick-named "Sir God". See more
While this movie is fictional, King Ralph and King Cedric would not be titled as Ralph I and Cedric I. They are only numbered as such once there has been a second monarch of the same name. Hence Queen Victoria is not referred to as "Victoria I." See more
[reciting some rules of etiquette to Ralph on videotape
When in public, a royal personage must refrain from chewing gum, using profanity, picking his nose, scratching his p... p... p... p... private parts and staring down the bust lines of visiting female dignitaries.
What the hell! That's everything!
