Trivia

In the novel of the same name, Sharpe fights at the famous Battle of Salamanca. In the film, the setting is changed to a key fortress in a town called Villafranca. In reality, there was a town of that name in Spain that saw action during the Peninsular war, but much earlier and without British involvement. See more »

Sharpe series favorite
21 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I totally agree with the in-depth review already submitted. This episode of the Sharpe series is my all-time favorite and the character of Lord Jack and the performance by James Purefoy have become a must -see every few months or so! I own all fourteen of the Sharpe series and annually play them in sequence. James Purefoy's portrayal of the tragic figure of Lord Jack and the tension-fraught scene in the library are worthy of any first-line production in the theater. You can tell I am a huge Sharpe fan (Sean Bean being the ultimate action hero of all time!) and I really feel sorry for people who have missed this engrossing and intelligently researched and produced series! Bernard Cornwell, author of the novels from which Sharpe is taken, is an outstanding writer and I recommend his other works to all. If you are a reader, try one of his many engrossing historical novels.
