Adventures and action in England during ¨ Two Roses War ¨
The movie is based on historical events , during Two Roses War , ¨ Red Rose ( York ) ¨ ruled by Edward IV and Richard III followers and ¨ White Rose ( Lancaster ) ¨ Henry VI followers who vanquish them . The film deal with a dashing outlaw ( Steve Chase ) named Black Arrow facing off a villainous count ( Oliver Reed ) and underlings ( Donald Pleasance and Aldo Sambrell ). The count tries to marry his pupil ( Georgia Slow ) confronting his nephew ( Benedict Taylor) .
It's a colorful film and highly agreeable entry in the swashbuckler and adventures genre . The story is adapted from Robert Louis Stevenson's novel with several fine action scenes and stimulating final . The picture offers loads of struggles , fence duels , fights and thrills to both children and adults . Sweepingly and glimmer photographed by cameraman John Cabrera . Lively and spectacular musical score by Stanley Myers. The movie is a remake for television of the Gordon Douglas classic film starred by Louis Hayward , George McReady and Janet Blair . The motion picture is regularly directed by John Hough . Rating: 5,5 . Mediocre but entertaining and amusing . Well worth seeing.
