Trivia

One widely known urban legend holds that a Turkish soldier can be glimpsed wearing a modern-day wristwatch. This has become one of the most oft-repeated "facts" about the film. In fact, no one has ever pinpointed where this supposed goof occurs, and a wristwatch can only be seen on behind-the-scenes photographs made during filming breaks. See more »

Goofs

One of the soldiers very obviously grabs an off-screen arrow and holds it to his chest when he's supposed to be shot down. See more »

The greatest Hungarian production from the 60s
23 November 1998 | by star-30See all my reviews

There was a time of expensive films supported by the state in the middle-European-area. Like SU made his "War and Peace"-blockbuster (cca.$300 million), his political partner Hungary made him too. It is called "Stars of Eger" from Geza Gardonyi's classic novel. Eger is a town that won a match against theTturkish army in the 16th century.
