Even though modern Italian state did not exist until 1861, the region corresponding to it has been referred to as "Italy" since Roman times. And during the setting of this film, they would've spoken a form of Italian. And they would've been referred to as Italian-Speakers or Italians.
Also, between 800 A.D. and 1806, there was an entity called the "Kingdom of Italy" which consisted of mostly of Northern and Central Italy except for Venice. It was one of the three constituent kingdoms of the so called Holly Roman Empire along with Germany and Burgundy. They were nominally ruled by the German Holy Roman Emperor, but in reality, central government was usually non-existent so the "Kingdom of Italy" only existed on paper.
Still, "Sir Anthony of Italy" would not have been an incorrect title. See more »
Take me back to the good old days of $2.50 Saturday matinees, a bucket of butter popcorn and a cold coca-cola. The Magic Sword is an innocent foray into childhood boyhood fantasies. Whether it's intended or not this film is humorous and simple in it's aim, "Let's have fun" It's your typical sword and sorceror movie with all the cliches, fire breathing dragons, boulder tossing ogres and evil minions. The sets and costumes fit in perfectly for the early sixties. I loved the script and special effects. Surprising enough the laserdisc version is quite good in transfer quality with big bold colours. Hopefully the DVD will be good also.
