TIME Staff TIME Magazine Everything is just as it ought to be in such a picture. Oct 3, 2018 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine A preposterous but harmless swordopera in CinemaScope, rather enjoyable on a comic-strip level. Nov 6, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

Steve D Dated but somewhat fun. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/24 Full Review Audience Member It is simple by today's standards... no real special effects, no historical importance... but I loved that movie when I saw it for $.25 in our school gym in 1960 and I loved it years later when I rented a VCR cassette and made my kids watch it with me. It is simple... old-fashioned... maybe even trite by today's standards. Technicolor pageantry... knights is armor, damsels in distress... escapist adventure that took me out of my brown, repressive, small town life. It is still worth watching - if for no other reason to see Tony Curtis at the height of his make-every-woman-swoon stardom and Janet Leigh in her youthful radiance - and a tremendous supporting cast. This isn't a great movie - but it is great entertainment! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review kevin w Howard Pyle's story Men Of Iron, manages to inform this typical swashbuckler as a young man (Tony Curtis) must clear his family's name, get back his family's land, and get the girl (Janet Leigh, most buxom). The character actors carry this piece while the leads provide the eye candy. Typical, yet fun. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member a good movie nice costumes,horses and riders of horses in scenes of knights fighting Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member My favorite Tony Curtis film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Henry IV Parts 1 & 2 were never like this! But then I don't think Shakespeare had much of a hand in this screenplay.
