In one scene, Navarre tells Philippe to ride his horse to Imperius' castle and slaps the horse's rear to make it ride. However, the first time the scene was filmed, Rutger Hauer (Navarre) slapped the horse too hard and it took off over the hill and off into the horizon. The horse was too powerful for Matthew Broderick to stop, so all everyone could do was sit and wait for him to come back. See more »
At the end of the battle at Imperius' keep, Isabo changes to a hawk as she falls from the top of the keep. Etienne then shoots the last guards after changing from the wolf. But Etienne is fully dressed, and there was no time for him to do so. See more »

A 2002 European DVD release (DY 01474.1) is 116 minutes, 5 minutes shorter than the original theatrical version. This is due to the 24/film->25fps/PAL speedup process; (24/25)*121 minutes = 116 minutes. See more »
I think this film is a classic. Based on an old, European legend, this movie is one of the best films ever made. The music was a bit distracting and annoying, but the actors were superb. John Wood once again delivers another wonderful villainous performance, while Rutger Hauer and Michelle Pfeifer play the 'seperated lovers'. Matthew Broderick gives a convincing performance as the Mouse.
It's a great flick that has both romance and action. It's a wonderful movie that both men and women will enjoy. Easy to follow and good special effects (for the '80's).
This movie is one to own!
