Storyline

Maria Montez was accorded top billing in this film by contractual agreement, although she is in the picture only long enough to take a bath in a tricky 17th century bathtub while sipping coffee with Charles Stuart and delivering dialogue in a barely-understandable French-accent. This is the second major film released within a short period with King Charles II as a primary character, and Charles here and Charles (George Sanders) in "Forever Amber" are two very varied approaches to the same character. This one takes place prior to the beginning of "Forever Amber" when Charles II and his followers are hiding out in Holland from Oliver Cromwell's puritan Round Heads. Being temporarily at liberty (or unemployed), Charles takes a day job at the farm/estate of Katie, and falls in love with her. Meanwhile he eludes his enemies by agility, enterprise and sword play, some of the latter performed while riding the blades of a Dutch windmill. He is summoned back to the throne and has to leave ...

Lost Film Treasures - Not Necessarily
18 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing the preview of THE EXILE when I was 9 years old, but never actually saw the film till last night. Reminded of this rare and all-but-forgotten picture via this website, I sought it out on the internet and purchased it for a modest price. No disappointment. A romantic adventure film set in 1660 combines real history with highly entertaining story. Douglas Fairbanks Jr. was a great leading man and he plays this role with ease and vigor. The re-creation of the era was perfect and the film has not a trace of today's annoying Attention Deficit Disorder editing. They didn't make any good movies in 2005, as evidenced by the trashy 5 lefty-spin pictures nominated as Best Picture. If you want to see a classic, don't give up on it. Seek it out and with tenacity you can find it and see it. I've only failed once, but still looking for that rarity.
