Golden Oldie
5 September 2002 | by (Cardiff) – See all my reviews

It's been a helluva long time since I saw this movie so details are a bit hazy, what I do remember is that at the time, I thought it was great!

There's a scene where a guy on horseback is being chased by some other guys on horseback and he comes to a huge ravine, not one to stand and get slaughtered by the marauding followers, he just jumps off the edge of the cliff (still on horseback mind you) and makes his escape. I remember thinking 'What about the poor horse?!'

I think at the end he saves the damsel in distress by jumping across a pit and snatching her from her position hanging over the pit, or something like that. Anyway, I would love to see it again if only to re-live a childhood memory...
