Like David Rowley (Briefly, 3 October) I too enjoyed David Thomson's article on Harvey Keitel, especially as we worked together on The Duellists. I was production manager. Mr Rowley's memory of where the film was shot is wrong. We did indeed shoot most of the picture in the Dordogne. Only one week's shooting (the retreat from Russia) was shot in Scotland and, as a thaw had set in, we had to recreate the snowy plains and mountains with salt and polystyrene. A further week's shooting took place in and around London because England has maintained some very beautiful French interiors.

Watching Mick Mahoney's comeback thriller Fantasy Bonds is like ogling an episode of The Sweeney, only seedier, more narcotic and minus the policemen. The lights come up on a seeping, sweaty nighthawks' bar, where one of the seeping, sweaty nighthawks can't decide whether to concentrate on rolling his joint of snorting his cocaine. This is Vince, one-time pop star, now virtually a full-time chemical processing plant: Vince, it transpires, is the least crooked geezer here.

THE FRESH air that has ruffled French rugby since Pierre Berbizier became coach now even extends to consistency of selection, an unlikely Gallic trait. The side named here yesterday to play South Africa tomorrow is as near as possible to the one who saw off Argentina during the summer, writes Steve Bale from Lyons.

STUNG by accusations of violent play and forced to make a late hotel switch, South Africa enter today's encounter with the Midi- Pyrenees XV in better heart as they welcome back their stand-off and captain, Naas Botha.
