King Edward: Tell me, when you refuse me your loyalty because I am a Norman, have you not considered that I have no choice in the same matter - that I must be king for Norman and Saxon alike whether I like it or not. Do you, Saxon, not owe something besides hatred to the same cause?

One of my favorite movies from my childhood
5 May 2000 | by (Sag Harbor, NY USA) – See all my reviews

A fine classic adventure story with a beautiful and exotic heroine. When I was a boy, I fell in love with Cecile Aubrey. I watched this film whenever it was shown on TV, and that was in the days of black and white. I didn't even know the movie was filmed in color. The characters and story line will hold your interest from first to last. Catch it if you can.
