Featured Animal Action

A man on a horse gallops across a grassy field to capture XXX. The director of the film rode his own horse in thisbrief cameo. Production ensured that the riding area was completely cleared for the horse's safety in addition to allowing for plenty of rest for the animal between takes.

Later in the film, several mice scamper around in a cage. At one point, a man picks up the cage of mice and moves it to another location. The mice are last seen in their cage as the room fills up with deadly smoke. Production rented the mice from a local pet store in Prague and returned them after two days of filming. The mice were removed from the set when smoke was present.
