The use of the word "arse" by Jack Read (Sir Richard Attenborough) presented an issue for the U.K. censors at the time, as profanity was a definite no-no for movies at the time. Eventually the censors relented on the grounds that this was a drama about the working and middle classes, and the scene was left in. This paved the way for realistic language including mild profanity in future U.K. dramatic movies. See more »
