The great Ralph Faulkner, fencing master and fight coordinator on most of the great Hollywood swashbucklers of the 1930s and 40s here doubles Henry Daniell in the climactic duel scene, much as he had done six years earlier in The Sea Hawk (1940), when Mr Daniell (described as "completely helpless" in a memo to Hal B. Wallis, because he couldn't handle a sword) had to fight Errol Flynn. See more »
The Regent withdraws the Magna Carta and, when the nobles agree, the Earl of Huntington (the former Robin Hood) vows to fight him and maintain the people's right to rule themselves. In fact, the Magna Carta didn't create a democracy, it was forced upon King John by the nobles to guarantee the rights and establish the political power of the nobles, not the people. The nobles would never have let the Regent withdraw the Magna Carta and strip them of their power. See more »
This movie is filmed in the most brilliant color !
I first saw this film when I was 9 years old and I have never forgotten the story. Cornell Wilde and the most beautiful blonde actress I had ever seen. Her name is Louise_______. Very exciting story. The prison scenes are very exciting and you know all will be well Thank you, Florence Forrester-Stockton Reno, Nevada
