The famous scene in which Princess Lily is taken to see and touch the unicorns by Jack was filmed within the gardens of Pinewood Studios, as at the time of filming, the vast forest set had been destroyed by a fire. This information was stated by Ridley Scott himself on the Director's Commentary on the Ultimate Edition DVD. See more »

Legend is one of those movies you either love or hate . It's a fantasy movie but it doesn't really contain a whole lot of action which is probably why many people are turned off by it . But the film is visually stunning and features a good performance by Tim Curry as "Darkness" , Tom Cruise on the other hand looks a bit confused throughout the movie . Also Rob Bottin's Make up is just amazing .
Now things weren't helped by the fact that there are so many versions of this movie and some are vastly better than others . The weakest and shortest of the all is the US theatrical cut because it misses many scenes and ads a few that seem tacked on but worst of all it contains a score by Tangerine Dream instead of the original one by Jerry Goldsmith .
The European cut is better in that it is longer and it features Jerry Goldsmith's score .
The best version however is the Director's Cut featured on The Ultimate Edition DVD . It runs alot longer than any of the other cuts and it is the most coherent cut as well and it features the score by Jerry Goldsmith.
