  • A Classic

    By Buzzpop
    I would call it a great classic as great as robin hood. For what they had to use, they did a fantastic job. I loved Elizabeth Taylor in this! all the action is top notch, with not too much gore but some death. All the costumes are well put and not cheesy. There is not a lot of comedy, but the jokes that are in this are great. Overall its a favorite classic :)
  • Not Bad!

    This is a picture worth viewing if you're not expecting a Ben-Hur type picture with Lord of the Rings or Robin Hood (the new one) battles! I liked it! Just remember they worked with what they had! I don't remember there being that much blood, but don't hold that against them! :)
