Trivia

The white armour worn by Ronald Lewis appears to be the same armour worn by Alan Ladd in the Black Knight made in the 1950's. See more »

Goofs

There are lots of instances when the same people die over and over. When Robert is being chased on horseback, the same archer falls off the same horse, on the same corner twice. Also, during the siege of Camelot, the same archers fall off the battlements two or three 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.
