A superb cast and great action sequences. Might seem a little stilted by today's standards, but that's because, unlike today, filmakers assumed audiences would be patient enough to follow the characters' emotional development.
Heston at his best.
the history world be good play program
more like the bore lord all he does is mope around his tower
Great movie saw it when I was a kid, Richard Boone was awesome Stockwell over acted like crazy. Heston never played a bad guy in his life. Tony whatever his name was looked out of place Great fight action with all the old war machines. I got to buy this movie
Although this powerful 1965 Franklin Schaffner-directed romance has abundant, realistically performed fighting scenes, the film is principally a love story, telling the story of a Norman lord, Chrysagon de la Crue.
When you have the DVD, you can appreciate numerous fine points about the directing, acting, script, combat and costuming which, in my opinion, made this one of the best, if not the finest, movie of its decade. I think it was Hestons greatest performance.
