With excellent photography from Jack Cox, lavish costuming and rich settings, this becomes a novelette on high-quality art paper. Nobody, surely, is expected to believe in its naive manner of narrative.

Amid the romantic highwaymen, secret passages and poisoned elderberry wine, the bogus sentiments expressed by the actors are a perfect match for the bogus look of their hair pieces.

Producers claim that this story is 'set in the days of Charles II'. Sets, costumes and a comely bunch of femmes bear out the claim. But the period atmosphere is not convincing.

Former critic and screenwriter Arliss [is] the unfortunate director having to contend with the recalcitrant mechanics of Lime Grove studio ruralism.

This lushly costumed drama is surprisingly boring, but Mason stands out with his swagger and gusto while the rest of the cast members are sadly unconvincing.

Filled with silly twists and overwrought melodrama, it has a distinctive sensibility, two charismatic anti-heroes who invest their roles with personality and energy, and a stylized, unreal flamboyance that keeps them lively.

A silly but nonetheless entertaining film with a devilish lead and some fine 'stand and deliver' action.
