Trivia

For the 2001 video release by Platinum Disc Corporation, the box correctly lists Steve Reeves as the star. However, the photo on the box is of Gordon Scott. The photograph was from another movie, Sergio Corbucci's Duel of the Titans (1961), in which both Reeves and Scott appear. See more »

Decent historical film based on Tolstoy novel
28 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is set during the mid-19th century when Russia flexed its empire-building muscles. The mountain tribes of the Caucusus rebelled against the Russian domination. The region is on the border of the southern most part of Russia today. The princess, who takes a trip to deliver the Czar's new orders to her husband, had to travel more than about 1,500 miles from St. Petersburg.

Steve Reeves play the lead role of Hadji Murad. The movie is based on a novel by that name written by Leo Tolstoy. Some of its account of the years of struggle in the Caucusus is fiction. But, many of the specific incidents did occur. In reality, a reading of a short bio or encyclopedia article on Hadji Murad would convince one that his escapades in this film were quite tame by comparison.

"The White Warrior" is an interesting film about a time and place for which American's have only occasionally shown interest. Still, it has historical value, and is based on a famous author's book of fiction.
