This is the first directing job for Ken Russell (billed as 'Squire Kenneth Russell') and it's obvious it was a homemade sort of affair. While I noticed one reviewer that gave this one a 10, it's insane to give it any sort of score because it was a guy fooling around with a camera honing his craft. It is neither brilliant nor terrible--just a film where the man learned a bit that would eventually help him to the next level as a filmmaker.
This film had a minuscule budget, but despite this, Russell and his pals decided to make a film about knights--and this is a bit of a surprise. To get past the financial difficulties, they use bicycles and a cheap homemade costume. As for the story, there isn't much to it. Really, it's just a chance to practice directing and film techniques. As such, Russell fans might find it fascinating--others probably won't.
