I remember this film.
10 November 2005 | by B-FullerSee all my reviews

You are not the only person that remembers this film.

I thought it was funny and better the Mel Brooks "Men in Tights" which had a similar theme.

As I remember it Tony Curtis is a young knight who falls for a lovely young maiden that gives him a really hard time until she realises that he really does love her. One their wedding day this load turns up and orders him to come on the crusades with him. But he must not leave his new bride, who he has not even spent one night with, without protection. The blacksmith is commissioned to construct a "Chastity Belt" for the young lady. The funniest scene for me is Tony pretending to have found some him for the lady and as they cuddle Tony slips the fiendish device upon her and off he goes.

I wish I could see it again as the last time was about 20 years ago.

If anyone knows where a copy can be found with English then please post a note here.

Thanks, Brian.
