Audience Reviews for Prince Valiant
Endearingly laughable old school Hollywood swashbuckler complete with silly wigs, pseudo olde worlde dialogue and pantomime villains.
Knighthood must be won.
Prince Valiant and his father the king are about to be invaded. The king sends valiant to King Arthur to be protected until it's safe to return home. Upon meeting Arthur, Prince Valiant declares he wants to be part of the round table. He is informed he will need to become a squire and earn his position. Valiant jumps at the chance and takes on the squire position.
"Who is he?"
Henry Hathaway, director of True Grit, How the West was Won, Niagara, The Sons of Katie Elder, Rawhide, Legend of the Lost, and Call Northside 777, delivers Prince Valiant. The storyline for this picture is entertaining, a bit cliché, but fun to watch unfold. The settings and costumes were all done as was the acting. The cast delivers very solid performances and includes Janet Leigh, James Mason, Robert Wagner, Donald Crisp, and Debra Paget.
"God help the king that has two daughters and no sons."
This was recommended to me by Fios so I randomly DVR'd it. This was solid and I enjoyed the film from beginning to end. This is far from a classic or on par with Errol Flynn pictures from this era, but it was worth following and seeing once.
"There's something queer going on."
Always a joy to watch Sterling Hayden. Wagner is well cast as the energetic & athletic young Prince. This average flick comes alive with an exceptionally well choreographed Viking fight scene that encompasses the whole castle near the end.
