Did You Know?

Goofs

The uniforms and weaponry of the soldiers do not reflect the French army of the time. The uniforms are more Spanish in appearance than French. The soldiers on guard at a door would not have used spears like those in the film. If using bladed weapons, they would have carried pikes. Ordinary soldiers would not have carried swords, only officers did so. See more »

cheap and cheerful swashbuckler
22 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This has very little to do with history, or real life at any period, but it is fast-moving and colourful and I enjoyed the snappy script:

"You are insolent."

"Only to people I don't like."

Richard Greene, who played Robin Hood in the British TV series in the '50s, is playing almost the same role, in a costume from somewhere around 1800, with a sword instead of a longbow. Assurance counts for a lot, especially for a hero, and he is surrounded by presumably Mexican actors(They all have Spanish-sounding names, but the film was made in the US.) as monks, dancers, feisty heroines and lovable rogues, who know what is expected of them as well as he does. If being a travesty of history stopped a work from being enjoyed and appreciated, a lot of Shakespeare would have to be thrown out. This one is far from being Shakespeare, but it certainly is fun.
