When Jack dives off the rock in the forest, it is Ridley Scott's daughter Jordan who is playing Princess Lily, and a stuntman playing Jack. This was done to make the rock look larger than what it was. The close-ups of Mia Sara were added during post-production. See more »

Also in the UK TV version (which is basically the same as the US version as seen on the NTSC Laserdisc) the scene at the beginning when we see the Chef hacking up a man on his chopping board, has been omitted. See more »
Legend is one of those movies you either love or hate . It's a fantasy movie but it doesn't really contain a whole lot of action which is probably why many people are turned off by it . But the film is visually stunning and features a good performance by Tim Curry as "Darkness" , Tom Cruise on the other hand looks a bit confused throughout the movie . Also Rob Bottin's Make up is just amazing .
Now things weren't helped by the fact that there are so many versions of this movie and some are vastly better than others . The weakest and shortest of the all is the US theatrical cut because it misses many scenes and ads a few that seem tacked on but worst of all it contains a score by Tangerine Dream instead of the original one by Jerry Goldsmith .
The European cut is better in that it is longer and it features Jerry Goldsmith's score .
The best version however is the Director's Cut featured on The Ultimate Edition DVD . It runs alot longer than any of the other cuts and it is the most coherent cut as well and it features the score by Jerry Goldsmith.
