Robert Taylor stars in this tale of chivalry from the times of yore based on Sir Walter Scott's classic novel. The production design is variable and fight sequences a little unconvincing, but the source material provides an unusually strong story and well-written characters featuring a nice message of racial and religious co-operation and tolerance. George Sanders makes a three dimensional and not entirely unsympathetic villain and Taylor has both Joan Fontaine AND the radiant Elizabeth Taylor vying for his affections. The lucky dog. A superior good old fashioned swashbuckler.
