Trivia

The only part of the movie present in the original novel is one of Sharpe's riflemen being caught stealing a chicken by a group of provosts. While the rifleman (named Skillicorn) was hanged in the movie, in the original novel he gets beaten by Sharpe. Furthermore, the Provost Lieutenant Ayres gets his comeuppance after Sharpe embarrasses him in front of the senior provost officers. See more »

Quotes

Richard Sharpe: [Skillicorn has been caught by Ayres with a chicken] Look nobody lives here it's deserted!
Lt. Ayres: He's a looter.
[turns to his flunkies]
Lt. Ayres: Hang him!

Film vs. book
31 July 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Sharpe's Gold is generally considered the least effective in the excellent series of films. I would have to agree. As for the difference between the book ( which is excellent) and the film..... Paul McGann was the original actor playing Richard Sharpe, filming had started on the first three films when Paul broke his leg playing football! I have read a huge insurance payment resulted. As the producers had to show changes had to be made to justify claim, the story was changed considerably. Sean Bean was cast as Sharpe and made the role his own, I would love to have seen what Paul McGann would have done with it though. I can't remember the source for this information, but it could be Bernard Cornwell's excellent website. He being the writer of the books. I may not have remembered it all correctly, but that is the gist of it. I have the box set of DVDs and play them often, along with my Hornblowers!
