      Shadowman4710 A charming if dated adaptation of Mark Twain's classic tale. Bing Crosby was perfectly cast as "Sir Boss," the 20th century mechanic mysteriously transported to the realm of King Arthur. The supporting cast which includes Cecil Hardwicke, William Bendix, and Rhonda Fleming are all fine but this is Crosby's film from start to finish. A must see for any fans of "Mr. Cros" but it's probably going to bore younger viewers. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/25/23 Full Review Audience Member The most embarrassing comedy ever, LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a little funny, defiently interesting, defiently something, yeah, it passed the time. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review bill t An ok adaption of this Mark Twain classic. Though maybe it's just me in thinking that not just this, but the source material is a wee bit dated. Also, that's an awful long flashback. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The best fantasy movie ever made! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A great movie. While done, must see. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/25/18 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
