Nice adaption from Mark Twain's classic
9 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

It's a gorgeous Walt Disney's film. The movie is very bemusing. The flick deals about the Prince Edward VI ,son of Henry VIII of England, who's replaced by a beggar and vice versa . The film mingles comedy, adventures, humor, tongue in check and history. The starring boy is excellent and Guy Williams (the Zorro) as the preceptor is sublime. Also are splendidly, the supporting roles : Nigel Greene, Geoffrey Keen , Jane Asher, Donald Huston, all are magnificent.

In the movie appear several historical characters, such as Catherine of Spain married with Henry VIII, Mary Tudor daughter from her, Elizabeth daughter of Ana Bolena and Lady Jane, everybody will be queens.

Direction by Don Chaffey is very good.

Rating 7/10
