PG | | Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy
A young peasant, with no interest in adventure or fortune, is mistaken as the kingdom's only hope when a horrible monster threatens the countryside.
The sequence in the armory was done in a single day.
It is the middle of the dark ages, ages darker than anyone had ever expected.
At the end of the film, visible wires hold up the monster's head.
"All characters portrayed in this film are entirely fictitious and bare no resemblance to anyone living or dead, except for one."
A single instance of the use of the word "buggers" had to be removed in order for the film to receive an 'A' (PG) certificate in the UK. Later releases were uncut.
