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 »

romance,action,thrills,scenery,surprise ending
29 May 2004 | by (Oxford,Alabama) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was twelve and identified with the young girl. I may have been young, impressionable, but involved with her character. I fell in love with Tyrone Power.I also felt Orson Welles was very handsome and knowledgeable. I thrilled to the thought of being in her place. I watched avidly the scenery as the film progressed for I was unable to travel as my family was not well off. I often dreamed of visiting foreign countries.I loved their beautiful costumes.I knew very little of the world and soaked up every moment.The Black Rose had many particulars of movies of today, romance,action,thrills,suspense,scenery,and a surprise ending. I believe any young girl of twelve to fourteen would love it today.I hope to see it again soon on Turner Classic Movies.
