From Franklin J. Schaffner, the acclaimed director of Planet of the Apes, Patton, Papillon and The Boys from Brazil comes this action-packed adventure yarn with great performances and production values. In the 11th century, the powerful Duke William of Ghent sends his most trusted knight, Chrysagon (Charlton Heston, The Big Country, El Cid), and a troop of warriors to guard Normandy’s coastal settlements from plunder and pillage by Frisian raiders. Smitten with Bronwyn (Rosemary Forsyth, What Ever Happened to Aunt Alice?), the foster child of village elder Odins (Niall MacGinnis, Jason and the Argonauts), the war lord is tempted simply to take her, under the feudal custom of droit du seigneur, but finds he is falling in love. Beautifully shot by the great Russell Metty (Spartacus) and co-starring Richard Boone (Winter Kills), Guy Stockwell (Tobruk), James Farentino (Dead & Buried) and Michael Conrad (Un Flic).
