Plot Summary

George, the son of the sorceress Sybil, has been watching the beautiful Princess Helene from afar and is very much in love with her. When she is kidnapped by the evil wizard Lodac, the king her father announces that she will be given in marriage to whoever rescues her. The first to volunteer is Sir Branton who expects to undertake the task alone. George, over his mother's objections, also decides to save her and is accompanied by six ancient knights. The journey is perilous with Lodac placing a series of challenges before them. Many in the group do not survive but George must eventually face Lodac's greatest challenge - his dragon.

Trivia The film was skewered in The Magic Sword (1992). In the "Mystery Science Theater 3000 Amazing Colossal Episode Guide" book, the show's creators admitted that "this is actually a pretty good movie." See more »
Goofs Even though modern Italian state did not exist until 1861, the region corresponding to it has been referred to as "Italy" since Roman times. And during the setting of this film, they would've spoken a form of Italian. And they would've been referred to as Italian-Speakers or Italians. Also, between 800 A.D. and 1806, there was an entity called the "Kingdom of Italy" which consisted of mostly of Northern and Central Italy except for Venice. It was one of the three constituent kingdoms of the so called Holy Roman Empire along with Germany and Burgundy. They were nominally ruled by the German Holy Roman Emperor, but in reality, central government was usually non-existent so the "Kingdom of Italy" only existed on paper. Still, "Sir Anthony of Italy" would not have been an incorrect title. See more »

Quotes Sir Branton: Was it magic?
Lodac: No. Not magic.
Sir Branton: Then how did George escape?
Lodac: I think... yes. Something stronger than magic. The power of Patrick's faith.
