New and above average adaptation derived from Sir Walter Scott classic novel
24 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

Remake of the 1953 classic movie directed by Richard Thorpe with Robert Taylor , George Sanders , Joan Fontaine and Elizabeth Taylor . Good family fare with romance and great action scenes . TV film which proved to be notable success in this lively rendition about chivalry and knighthood in 1194 England. Knights battle each other and woo maidens on this chivalrous epic romance .This splendid version of Sir Walter Scott's classic epic tale starts in 12th century, when Saxon Knight Wilfrid of Ivanhoe (Anthony Andrews , in the classic version Robert Taylor), a suitable noble wielding a shield titled Desdichado, having fought for Richard the Lionhearted( Julian Glover) during the Crusades, goes back to England . Meanwhile the King Richard has been taken prisoner and asks help : 'To the people of England . I am here held captive by Leopold of Austria. My brother, prince John has knowledge of it, yet he has denied my ransom. One hundred and fifty thousand marks of silver. I fear he does conspire with certain Norman knights to seize my throne. People of England, speed my deliverance. Your kingdom is at stake'. In order to regain his freedom , Ivanhoe confronts Prince John (Ronald Pickup in the role of Guy Rolfe) and his lieutenants (in this case Sam Neill , John Rhys-Davies , Stuart Wilson) and he's also drawn to Jewish healer Rebecca (Olivia Hussey in the Elizabeth Taylor's character ), daughter of Isaac of York (James Mason in the role Felix Aylmer). Meantime , Ivanhoe woo maidens, as his childhood sweetheart , Saxon heiress Rowena (Lysette Anthony in the Joan Fontaine's role). Prince John, now John Lackland will stop at nothing to assume the throne , while waiting for King Richard to return from the Cruisades . Ivanhoe join forces with Robin Hood and his Merry man who attack the stronghold.

Sir Walter Scott's story of romance and chivalry in Medieval England is faithfully brought to life in this superb Telefilm in which Anthony Edwards stars as Ivanhoe who fights the evil Prince John and his hoodlums in an attempt to restore Richard Lion Heart -the Black Night- to the throne. This enjoyable film displays romance, chivalry, knighthood, daring jousting and lots of action with spectacular castle attack . The jousting , tournaments and other action sequences with a plethora of sword-fights involving maces, axes and chains are magnificently handled . The authentic battle images are among the most spectacular ever shot for television , as the siege of Torquillstone castle is a truly exciting sequence and the ending duel between the dastardly Bois-Guilbert excellently played by Sam Neill and Ivanhoe is impressive . This one proved notable hit as well as the original version . But this is more than just the habitual British TV spectacle , as the novel's issue of anti-semitism is deal with honestly in the person of Rebecca and Isaac Of Yok , very well played by Olivia Hussey and James Mason respectively, who are discriminated against , while unfortunate Rebecca is put on trial and condemned as witch to burning pole ; being suddenly saved by Ivanhoe . The film packs a glamorous and luminous cinematography by John Coquillon and evocative musical score by Ferguson. The picture is excellently handled by Douglas Camfield.

The film is partially based on true events. Although Ivanhoe didn't exist, John Lackland was king of England from 1199 to 1216. Few monarchs have been subject to such appalling publicity as John, Although by no means lovable, he was an able administrator and spent more time in England than his predecessor and elder brother Richard I but he was jailed by Leopold of Austria, returning from Crusades. Besides appears Robin Hood, also known Robin O'Locksley and the Earl of Huntingdom, is probably and sadly a creation of romantic imaginations. If Robin Hood did exist, it's almost certain that he was not a Saxon , though his enemies may well have been the Norman sheriff of Nottinghan and Prince and later king John Lackland.
