When an English cartographer must tell a Welsh village that their mountain is only a hill, the offended community sets out to change that.
Despite the implication in the film, and the real-life local legend, the story is fiction. Historians have determined that the mound at the summit of Garth Mountain (the inspiration for the movie) is a Bronze Age burial mound. In 1999, local officials and the History Society placed a sign on the mountain, telling the many climbers who've been coming there because of the movie's popularity of the site's real significance - and warning that they face two years in prison if they disturb the burial mound.
For some odd reason, lost in the mists of time, there's an extraordinary shortage of last names in Wales. Almost everyone seems to be a Williams, a Jones, or an Evans. To avoid widespread confusion, Welsh people often add an occupation to a name. ...
At the end of the scene where the Reverend slashes the front tire of the Englishman's car, a reflection of a crew member can be seen in the windshield of the car after the Reverend exits.
Dedicated to the memory of Peter Shaw.
