Young Prince Valiant, son of the exiled King of Scandia, journeys to Camelot to become a knight at King Arthur's Round Table. He hopes to help his father reclaim his throne from the pagan usurper Sligon and restore the Christian faith to their homeland. On his journey he stumbles on the mysterious Black Knight plotting with the Viking pretender to overthrow Arthur. Barely escaping with his life, Valiant encounters Sir Gawaine, a friend of his father's who tutors the young Viking in the skills needed to be a knight. Valiant and Gawaine's pupil/mentor relationship is complicated by their romantic involvement with Princess Aleta and her sister Ilene, daughters of a British nobleman. If Valiant is to restore his father's throne and prevent the coup d'etat against Arthur, he must uncover the true identity of the Black Knight. Written by

Alnwick Castle in Northumberland served as Camelot in all of the master shots while Warwick Castle was used for the main gate and courtyard. Although Alnwick is brown sandstone and Warwick is pale grey stone, carefully placed cameras and lighting masked the difference in shadows. See more »
The Black Knight has his shield on the right arm when first seen. In the next shot it is on his left, in the next back on his right arm. See more »
[Holding up cross]
By this sign shall ye conquer.
[Crowd repeats his words]
Signs won't conquer Sligon !
I mean it, brothers. Words won't save our king.
We must trust in our Lord and keep the faith.
Would there be any Christian faith if our people had never fought for it ? The Lord helps those who help themselves !

There are only few - VERY few - classic sword & sorcery adventures out there which deserve more than a glance. Yes, this one's pretty ignorant of Hal Foster's original, and I pity that. But as far as 40's/50's first class adventure romps go, this one ranks right beneath the all-time classic 'The Adventures Of Robin Hood', bravely levels with 'Ivanhoe', and easily settles above 'Knights Of The Round Table'.
This is a classic Sunday afternoon couch with a bag of chips movie.
As long as you don't expect something else, this is the movie for you.
9 out of 10 for what it is and always will be.
