Trivia

A school girl in Dunfermline skipped school one day and landed a part in this, crowning Robert The Bruce. She then went on to film other scenes including a corpse. Although she never got paid she claims it was the most exciting thing that happened. Never been in front of cameras before ,she was shy but found it easy as set was closed when Oliver Reed was in the coronation scene. The crown on Sandy (Robert The Bruce) kept slipping off his wig . He told the school girl that inside was a dot which was supposed to sit at the back. This helped. The next scene was perfect and they kept it in movie where the school girl smiles at her friends next to her, happy it stayed on. See more »

Stuart Poole Steals the Show...
29 October 2002 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Reed, Blessed, Welch and van Wijk all turn in quality performances in this under-rated account of Scotland's greatest warrior (are you watching William Wallace?) but one cast member stands head and shoulders above his colleagues. In the final set, Stuart Poole, clad in garb to make Robin Hood jealous, congratulates the Bruce on his vanquishing of the foe. The dignity, grace and emotion evident in Poole's performance is a joy to behold. It's a shame he isn't credited on imdb...
