Saladin, ruler of the kingdoms surrounding the Latin state of Jerusalem, is brought to attack the Christians in the Holy Land by the sacking of a convoy of Muslim pilgrims, a group which included his sister. In a short campaign against odds, Jerusalem is taken and almost the entire Middle East is in Muslim hands. Crusade is called again in Europe, and the combined forces of the French king, German emperor, and English king form the 3rd Crusade, under the leadership of Richard the Lionheart of England. Although Accre is taken by the Crusaders, Saladin succeeds in preventing the recapture of Jerusalem, and in the end negotiations between himself and Richard (who Saladin admires as the only honorable leader) leave the Holy Land in Moslem hands.Written by

Masterpiece in all the aspects of the word , first of all the production and direction are incredible for a movie of year 1963!! , the reality and the honest in historical facts ( for more about this historical period visit " http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saladin " also it is not 100% fair ! ) if you want to know the complete story as happened then watch the movie. the movie is a citation of a period of Crusaders ( the unfair wars which made by west under the name of cross ) exactly it was The Third Crusade: 1189-1192 which led by Frederick Barbarosa, Richard I of England and Philip II of France , and the full details about this third attack is cited in this wonderful movie ( which is made for the sake of truth nothing else " the producer run out from money because such movies have no chance to be international because of anti-Muslims which don't want the modern westerners to know anything about the fact of Islam and Muslims , in other words they want everybody to think that these Muslims are the terrorists and that they are the danger for all the world ,but in fact Arabs and Muslim been victims for selfish of the west all the way
