FILM: Prince Valiant (1997)

Richard Lysons is currently working on an article concerning the film Spring and Port Wine for the Manchester Bolton and Bury Canal Society Magazine and says that he will give Realstreets a decent "plug", so thank you for that Richard. As it is holiday time he is kindly drawing our attention to the fact that the 1997 film Prince Valiant with Katherien Heigl and Joanna Lumley had its exterior and interior scenes shot in North Wales. The Movie Map North Wales (2006 edition) listing:

Penrhyn Castle, Caernafon Castle, Capel Curig, Beaumaris, Llanfair PG, Blaenau Festiniog, Beddgelert, Trawsfynydd, Gwrych Castle.

There is an interesting short "behind the scenes" clip on Youtube at

Does anyone have a copy of this film so that we can take some grabs and use Richard's knowledge and interest to cover this film? Maybe YOU have a holiday booked in Wales!
