A school girl in Dunfermline skipped school one day and landed a part in this, crowning Robert The Bruce. She then went on to film other scenes including a corpse. Although she never got paid she claims it was the most exciting thing that happened. Never been in front of cameras before ,she was shy but found it easy as set was closed when Oliver Reed was in the coronation scene. The crown on Sandy (Robert The Bruce) kept slipping off his wig . He told the school girl that inside was a dot which was supposed to sit at the back. This helped. The next scene was perfect and they kept it in movie where the school girl smiles at her friends next to her, happy it stayed on. See more »

This movie is the last straw in a list of films I have seen this week that have pushed me over the edge and forced me to join IMDb and spread some warning to the public. It was absolutely horrible. The film was drawn out and painfully boring. The sound, effects, and even picture quality seemed like they came from Willow (1988) or maybe even Conan the Barbarian (1982). The battle of Bannockburn was absolutely absurd. This "largest filmed reconstruction of medieval battle ever staged in the British Isles" made me snicker. There wasn't even a coherent formation at all, just a few guys with spears and horses running right through them. The scenes of Douglas, especially in the last battle, were simply horrible, as was most of the acting in the film.
