Twelfth-century Lombardy lies under the iron heel of German overlord Count Ulrich 'The Hawk', but in the mountains, guerillas yet resist. Five years before our story, Ulrich stole away the pretty wife of young archer Dardo who, cynical rather than embittered, still has little interest in joining the rebels. But this changes when his son, too, is taken from him. The rest is lighthearted swashbuckling, plus romantic interludes with lovely hostage Anne. Written by

Story is about 12th Century Lombardy under the iron heel of German Overlord Count Ulrich "the Hawk', but guerrillas resist. The plot begins five years before this time when Ulrich steals away the pretty wife of Archer Dardo who has no interest in joining the rebels. But this changes when his son is take from him. Burt Lancaster plays Dardo and Virginia Mayo plays his wife Anne. What steals away from the movie are the real actual acrobatics of warfare in those days. Fantastic circus performers show their skills. Lancaster, himself, was a circus performer, and certainly shows his muscular skills in this! Great fun!
