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.

wonderful unique quirky character based hilarity
25 December 2006 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Loved this movie absolutely loved it I wish there'd be a sequel Maldwyn Pugh was hilarious "he's here he's there he's everywhere." Windsor spot on Dewie morris as playboy son of undertaker was superb and of course the legend that is Tenby's Hugh Griffith's of Hollywood fame no actor said more with his eyes and eyebrows in the history of popular entertainment.

It seems Mr Griffith's made a few other welsh and rugby films as well as British classics like kind hearts and coronets. A run for your money is hilarious welsh rugby movie too.

Great to see a welsh film though. Makes a change there's so few of them and they're just so original the best types of movies in my humble opinion are the ones which bring in a lot of balance , qualities and true culture. If I see a British movie, the best ones are the ones that have the best variety and balance, story and characterisation are huge too in Britain the best movies combine the Irish, Scots, English and welsh and throw in a few American and European influences and you get magic like, remains if the day, Lion in winter, Zulu.

This is what puts the great in great Britain
