Trivia

A Catalan surprise - this picture was shot in Barcelona and its surroundings. Laurentia's royal palace is in fact the Palau Reial de Pedralbes and you can see in some scenes the statue of Queen Isabel II which is in front of the Palau showing to the people his son King-to-be Alfonso XII in her arms; the big fountain at the palace gardens is in fact farther on, located at the Ciutadella park, and the exterior of the "cathedral" where the royal wedding takes place is in reality Sitges' coastal village humble church of Sant Bartomeu i Santa Tecla.

Crazy Credits

Opening card: "Guarded by immemorial mountain peaks, gaunt and forbidding, the stronghold of the storm, Laurentia is a country of strange contrasts - the tenderness of romance, the venom of intrigue - and here, beneath these bastions of rock, we lay our story." See more »

Interesting but not too absorbing
21 February 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the first time I've seen or heard of this movie. I'm just tuned into the middle of the film. It's less of a drama and really more of a musical in a mildly romantic sense. The scenery is sumptuous with an atmosphere of high fashion, moreso since the setting involves royalty, i.e. Errol Flynn is to become king so it's lavish in every way. Anna Neagle sings well; I'd never heard her sing before (at least I hope it is her own voice). It is regrettable that Flynn only had a few more years left in his brief life, brief by our standards today. It's refreshing to see a film I haven't seen before. If you like pleasant songs, gentle romance and pageantry, this is one you ought to see when you can. It's almost like a European Broadway musical!
