Orson Welles only took this role so he could get enough money to keep filming Othello (1951), which took years to complete due to poor financial backing. See more »
It's the 13th Century when our heroes first leave England. Walking through the Arab market, they pass tomatoes for sale, which are later thrown at them by children. Tomatoes are a New World plant, and could not have been found in Old World markets prior to the voyages of Columbus in the 15th century. See more »
At least I'm good enough to know, no war was ever won that was fought in the same way as the war before it.

A fine classic adventure story with a beautiful and exotic heroine. When I was a boy, I fell in love with Cecile Aubrey. I watched this film whenever it was shown on TV, and that was in the days of black and white. I didn't even know the movie was filmed in color. The characters and story line will hold your interest from first to last. Catch it if you can.
