Trivia

The film was first shown on 17 March 1978, with filming taking place a year earlier. The dialogue in the film was heavily ad-libbed by the cast around a rough outline by the writer and director. The ending was originally planned with Wales winning. When they lost the game the ending was hastily revised, with additional dialogue pick-up shots in the stands of the Cardiff Arms Park. The filming took place in the following order: The village streets (hearse); Training Plane (Rhoose Airport); Paris exteriors; All Paris interiors (BBC Club, Newport Road, Cardiff) The original 1977 members of the Welsh and French RFC teams can be seen in this film on the filed and off, including Gareth Edwards, JPR Williams, Phil Bennett and others.

Great film but only if you are Welsh
12 May 2003 | by (Swindon) – See all my reviews

This film is set around Wales' attempt to win the Rugby Union Grand Slam against France in Paris in the mid 1970's.Windsor Davies plays Mog the tour leader,Oscar winner Hugh Griffith plays II World War veteran Mr.Lloyd-evans and Sion Probert plays camp boutique owner Maldwyn.Most of the film is filmed in Paris and it uses real footage from the game to give us the atmosphere of a Rugby Union international played between these two great rugby teams.The film is hilarious and moving but the particular facets of Welsh humour may not translate for you so my advice is go and spend a couple of years in Wales and then watch the film.
