Trivia

The battle of Agincourt was filmed in two weeks, with 300 men and 80 horses, in a field in Hungary. To achieve a muddy battlefield, the crew would let horses run over it. The weather was so hot that the mud kept drying up in between takes, so they moved the battlefield to the left and did the same process again. See more »
