Einar and Eric are two Viking half-brothers. The former is a great warrior whilst the other is an ex-slave, but neither knows the true identity of the other. When the throne of Northumbria in Britain becomes free for the taking, the two brothers compete against one another for the prize, but they have very different motives - both involving the princess Morgana, however.

In an interview given shortly after the release of the film both Kirk Douglas and Tony Curtis said that they had been cold during the entire filming. The water in the fjord was just above freezing and the air temperature was only slightly warmer. See more »

I love this movie! Kirk is at this showy best, Tony is underplaying his part, which fits here & Borgnine is a big hoot! Janet Leigh is, of course her usual pretty self. She's quite thin but beautiful. Her & Curtis are such opposites in view that it works, even in real life.
Borgnine is the father to both Kirk & Curtis but doesn't know about Curtis. It's not revealed until after Borgnine jumps to his death into a pit of ravenous wolves. Curtis is just a slave & he & Kirk instantly dislike each other when they meet. Kirk is after Leigh after she's been captured for a ransom & Curtis wants to free her. He does which makes Kirk hate him even more & he goes after him across the sea.
The authenticity of the Viking ships & way of life is amazing. This film is a great adventure! A must-see!
