Storyline

Carlos Delargo, son of a royal princess of Mandorra who has been banished, is returned to the kingdom to face a murder charge, but is freed by King Lorenzo, to whom Dalargo bears a remarkable resemblance. When the king is wounded by assassins working for Napoleon, Delargo takes over the throne, at the request of Prime Minister Triano, in a plan to thwart the traitors. He also falls in love with the king's fiancée, Princess Teresa. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Napoleonic Zenda
5 July 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

The senior Dumas' novel is turned into a knockoff of THE PRISONER OF ZENDA -- although as I have never read this Dumas novel, it may simply be returning the compliment.

Director Karlson is not able to raise much of a performance from anyone except from Anthony Quinn, who plays his slimily villainous role with the appropriate cool aplomb. Still and all, besides the pleasures of Anthony-Quinn-watching, Karlson does manage to shoot the entire procedure with a goodly amount of visual beauty, with an MGM-style sumptuousness well displayed. Aside from these two point, however, this one is pretty much a washout.
