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 <>

This time two Dexters!!!
8 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The year 1951 Anthony Dexter made his film debut in "VALENTINO". The resemblance to the original silent screen idol was uncanny. I felt Columbia Pictures thought they would build him as a swashbuckler like his predecessor. So Mr.Dexters next film was an adventure story based on a novel by Alexandre Dumas. He plays a dual role - a badly wounded king(assassination attempt) and a desert adventurer who is persuaded to double for him.

The plot had been used a number of times previous to 1952. Mr.Dexter handles his role(s)well including sword duels and several dance routines including the tango(Valentino reference).This film is well mounted in Technicolor and excellent direction by Phil Karlson.

The supporting cast does fine - Anthony Quinn as the villain, the two female leads Jody Lawrence and Gale Robbins,and Carl Benton Reid handle their roles expertly.I have not seen this film since

1964 and would like to view again on DVD!!!
