Absolutely Amazing!


Full of wonderful French humor and swashbuckling action. It's a crime it isn't more well known.

black and white movies were better

Just watched this film for the first time about a week ago and it's one of my favorite french films! Gerard Philipe is great in this film (it's a tragic loss for cinema that he died so young), and the beautiful Gina Lollobrigida... I'll watch this again soon

It is a really fun romp of a movie, with a great cast (Philipe is every bit as good as his reputation) and lavishly done. I have to say, though, that while many films look best in black and white, this is one I would have loved to see in color...probably would have been eye-popping!
