Sword of Honour (2001)


Not strictly a film, this two part, four hour television production starring Daniel Craig attempts to encapsulate Evelyn Waugh’s trilogy into a film.

Parts of Mallorca became Crete, Egypt, Yugoslavia, North Africa, France and Italy. 

The Castle of Bellver in Palma, or at least the rooftop terrace, became Fort Sidi Bishir, the military headquarters in Egypt, where Guy comments upon Trimer’s apparent heroism.

And not to be outdone, Edinburgh became London.
