Goofs

The film is set during the time of the Jacobite Rebellion which began in 1745. The Golden Retriever was first bred in Scotland in 1868, more than 100 years after the time when the film was set.


Crazy Credits

Opening credits: In the west of England there was once a Squire Allworthy. After several months in London he returned home. his sister, Bridget. his servants. after supper. "Mrs. Wilkins!" "aaah!" a baby! abandoned!!! "how did it get here?" "who can the mother be?" "Jenny Jones!" "who is the father Jenny?" "send for Partridge the barber!" Partridge the barber - the father? "I will deal with you later, sir!" "you must be sent away from this shame and degradation." "as for your child . . . . . " "I will bring him up as if he were my own son." "what will you call him brother?" "Tom Jones." of whom the opinion of all was that he was born to be hanged.



Alternate Versions

When the film was first submitted to the BBFC, director suggested to that the film would pass as an 'A' (under 16's accompanied) if he removed a shot of Mrs Waters cradling an oyster on her tongue before swallowing it during the famous eating sequence. Richardson refused and the film was passed as an 'X' (no over-16's allowed). All UK releases since then have been cut by 12 secs to remove shots from a cockfight scene, which is regarded as cruel animal activity by the BBFC.
