The fight takes place in the mud. However, there were a lot of horses standing around, “doing what animals will do, and it was a lot more than mud!” Now if that wasn’t bad enough, they thought the filming was finished on Friday afternoon, only to get to work on Monday morning to find that the director wanted to re-shoot part of that scene, only now the ‘mud mixture’ had ripened, but into it they went all over again! Now that is dedication to your craft!
