Did You Know?


The Welsh island in the story is named as Caldey Island, a real place off the coast of Pembrokeshire, but much smaller than this film suggests - it would seem that none of the movie was actually filmed on Caldey, which is principally the home of an ancient Benedictine monastery where a distinctive perfume is manufactured by monks.

The allees of trees flanking the roads as the horsemen rode furiously to save someone in this film were not planted until the time of Napoleon. He had them planted to shade his armies as they marched through the hot sun while in uniform. See more »

Enjoyable suspension of disbelief
13 July 2018 | by h-d-lewisSee all my reviews

Typical 50s sword and cape film with slew of supporting British and French actors. Pity there isn't a single Welsh one given that part of the action is supposed to take place in Wales. The "Welsh" contingent have a bash at an accent but truth to tell anyone who has ever been to Wales would not be convinced. Finlay Currie for instance was a well known SCOTTISH actor with an accent to match has a go at mangling a Welsh one. But then have you ever seen "How Green was my Valley", a good novel Hollywoodenized?

Well, despite the fact the camera crew never went to Wales, the actors do what they can to move things along (the director could have helped more). The music is clunky and helps even less.

But, hey, the leads are all good looking or, when given some freedom like the "grande dame" Martini Hunt, manage to raise a smile.

So suspend your disbelief - as you have to do to many present-day films - and don't expect any explosions or leaps from tall buildings and settle down in a comfortable sofa.
