    This re-make is a poor cousin to the original (1937). The original had heart, character, and it kept your interest. The re-make was to be a frame-by-frame re-enactment of the original, something that was impossible to do, and something that proved ridiculous to try. Casting details also cheapened the remake and even the shift to color didn't help. The original version is the best.

    OK-ish period piece. Granger and Kerr are both kind of wooden. Mason is the one with a tour de force performance.

    Perhaps Grangers best movie! Both him and Mason are excellent in the scenes they are together.

    A bit too melodramatic, but still enjoyable.

    74% Damn near, word for word and shot for shot remake...damn near. Nice improvement with the sword play though.

    I don't know why they remade it. It's not bad, but it doesn't improve on the original.
