Rutger Hauer lost several pounds from doing the Cathedral battle scene, due to the weight of his armour and broadsword.

Kurt Russell was initially cast as Navarre. Richard Donner wanted Rutger Hauer to play the role of Marquet. Hauer loved the script but wanted the lead. Just before principal filming began, Russell left the project (it was said he and Donner had creative differences.) and Donner was in desperate need of a leading man. Hauer thankfully accepted it, actually driving 2000 miles in two days to take the part.
Deleted Scenes
When movies are made, scenes are often left on the cutting room floor.
Alternate Versions
Sometimes, there will be several versions of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may release a special cut of the movie.
