It's the 13th Century when our heroes first leave England. Walking through the Arab market, they pass tomatoes for sale, which are later thrown at them by children. Tomatoes are a New World plant, and could not have been found in Old World markets prior to the voyages of Columbus in the 15th century. See more »

An all time favorite action flick with drama, memorable scenes, top notch performances, especially Orson Welles and Jack Hawkins, and a bit of romanticized history thrown in for good measure. Welles' best role of the decade, comparable to his performance as Cesare Borgia. Hard to beat the drama in the "archery" scene.
