Quite frankly, I was thoroughly captivated. This was made in 1969 and had there were those moments that seemed a bit dated, but nothing sufficient enough to dull the goings on in the film. I'll confess, I always find the love stories in the Trilogy to be a bit contrived (people do seem to fall in and out of love a tad too quickly), but here it was lively and fairly fun. There was considerable effort to make Wolodyjowski and Basia compatible in love and temperament. It was also fascinating to see a young Daniel Olbrychski in his heyday. The characters, major and minor, were all well developed, and the story invigorating. I wanted to fight some Ottoman Turks myself by the end.
