Trivia

The only part of the movie present in the original novel is one of Sharpe's riflemen being caught stealing a chicken by a group of provosts. While the rifleman (named Skillicorn) was hanged in the movie, in the original novel he gets beaten by Sharpe. Furthermore, the Provost Lieutenant Ayres gets his comeuppance after Sharpe embarrasses him in front of the senior provost officers. See more »

User Reviews

Excellent like all the other Sharpe's adventures!
2 July 2006 | by azcowboysingrSee all my reviews

I have to disagree with onysia's comments. I enjoyed this one as much as I did all the rest of the Sharpe's episodes. I do agree with his/her comment about the "Yanks & Combs" Star Trek one though...it was truly awful...lol. So far, I have yet to see one of the Sharpe's adventures that I didn't enjoy thoroughly. The only thing I found unbelievable about Sharpe's Gold is that the renegades didn't strip the girl for the sacrifice scene...I would've...she was hot! lol. I am so glad that we discovered the Sharpe's series on BBC America...it really makes our Saturday evenings more fun. Until we saw Lord of the Rings, we didn't know who Sean Bean was, now we are confirmed fans of his...what a fine actor!
