Review

Our Score
The Mexican locations and supporting cast are a major stumbling block for this would-be swashbuckler that is actually set in post-Napoleonic France. Producer Howard Dimsdale should be applauded for refusing to settle for backlot "realism", but director Thomas Carr seems as indifferent to the location as he is to the pacing and content of the narrative. Mercifully, Richard Greene, warming up for his stint as TV's Robin Hood, is on noble form as he returns from war to find his estates misappropriated by scheming duke Manolo Fabregas and princess Leonora Amar in the clutches of slavering count, Eduardo Noriega.

Summary

A brave nobleman forms a band of outlaws to free 19th-century French villagers from the tyranny of an evil duke, reclaim his birthright and save a lovely princess from a fate worse than death at the hands of a lecherous count. Swashbuckling adventure, starring Richard Greene, Leonora Amar, Nedrick Young and Manolo Fabregas.
