Not that the rumbustious, well-built and fair-haired Harris tried to discourage the public persona of a hard-drinking, hard-living Irishman, hitting the headlines with nightclub brawls and noisy on-set disputes.
Harris's careers fell into three phases: the hot-headed, working-class young rebel This Sporting Life, ; the macho masochist A Man Called Horse, or fiery action hero The Wild Geese, ; and, finally, the grey-bearded sage.

Pain pervades the film, on the rugby field and in the dentist's chair, where Machin is having his broken teeth ruggedly extracted.
