3.  What movie is this?
The star did not want to act in the movie (he felt he was too old for the part), but the studio refused to finance it without the superstar appearing.  He also directed the movie.  It was a critical and box office success.  It won the Best Picture Oscar and Gibson was awarded Best Director.  It captured a total of five Oscars.  The movie was filmed in Scotland, although most of the extras for the battle scenes were from the Irish territorial army.  The screenplay was written by Randall Wallace who also did the “We Were Soldiers” script.  He based the story on a medieval poem by Blind Henry.
