Goofs

The monarch's standard includes a quadrant with the Fleur Des Lys. The relates to the monarchy's French possessions. However this connection did not arise till 1066 when William of Normandy defeated Harold at the Battle of Hastings to become William 1. So the standard could not have been that of monarchs of the Saxon times. See more »

Fondly Remembered
9 May 2005 | by (brighton, ma) – See all my reviews

I fondly remember Siege Of the Saxons from a Saturday matinée I went to as a child. It may not play well with adults, but I don't think it was intended for grown-ups in the first place. It has a decent cast for the kind of film it is, and I recall Ronald Howard (son of Leslie) being quite good. There are some good battle scenes, none too graphic by today's standards. The movie is kid's stuff; the color is nice; the actors don't embarrass themselves; and the limping man looks as sinister as he's supposed to. I also recall Janette Scott as being quite attractive, as indeed she was. This would probably be a good movie for children. It's exciting in much the same way Robin Hood is.
