Trivia

At the Battle of Talavera, the French march from left to right across the whilst the South Essex advance right to left. Such cinematography is used by filmmakers as a subtle technique indicating good and evil: those going right to left, as the South Essex do, are presented as the heroes and the French, the villains.

Goofs

After the battle of Talavera, while the wounded are still being carried into the hospital, Countess Josephina informs Sharpe that London has created Wellesley Lord Wellington as a result of his victory. There is no way that London could have been informed of the results of the battle so quickly, let alone returned word of Wellesley's elevation. See more »

Quotes

Wellesley: The South Essex is stood down in name. If I wipe the name away, I may wipe the shame. I am making you a Battalion of Detachments, you will fetch and carry. The Light Company put up a fight, so I will let it stand under the command of a new captain.
Sir Henry Simmerson: To be commanded by the newly-gazetted Captain Gibbons, sir?
Wellesley: To be commanded by the newly-gazetted Captain *Sharpe*, sir.

Good Film
21 September 2018 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

I've never read any of Bernard Cornwell's books but I can say the Sharpe film series is well worth watching.

In this episode Sharpe vows to restore the regiment's honour by capturing a French Imperial standard: the Eagle.
