Did You Know?


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.

I'll 'ave you in ashes I will !
11 May 2005 | by (London, U.K.) – See all my reviews

It doesn't matter whether you are Welsh or not or whether you love rugby, good comedy is always funny. This film has a lovely down to earth feel that all will appreciate.

If you are Welsh then you'll appreciate the humour and it will feel very familiar even if you don't love rugby. If you do love rugby then it's even more enjoyable.

If you are not Welsh then the comedy, story and charisma of the main stars will entertain you anyway.

Windsor Davies and Oscar winning Hugh Griffith are my favourites but my wife loves camp Boutique owner "Maldwyn" played by Sion Probert.

It's only an hour long but manages to pack in comedy, violence, sex, sport and camaraderie.

In a year that Wales won a fantastic Grandslam (2005) what more can you ask for from a motion picture?
