Swashbuckler Tyrone Powers is vanquished by the beauty of Maureen O'Hara
With an excellent screenplay, outstanding cinematography, and stars who galvanize the screen, The Black Swan promises to satisfy its viewers. Made in the period when the Hollywood Studio System was at the peak of its creative, industrial powers, this swashbuckler is a visual feast. Maureen O'Hara and Tyrone Powers shine as lovers who begin their romance by loathing each other. The clever dialogue and sexual innuendo between the leads tantalizes us as we see them fall more deeply in love. But don't think this movie is only about romance. There's plenty of action, adventure, and swordplay, too! If you enjoy this one, you'll also enjoy other adventures starring Tyrone Power, Mississippi Gambler and King of the Khyber Rifles.
