With royal banners unfurled and a regal cast, King Richard and the Crusaders ventures forth, bring to screen life Sir Walter Scotts 1825 classic of myth and history The Talisman. Academy Award winners Rex Harrison (1964 Best Actor, My Fair Lady) and George Sanders (1950 Best Supporting Actor, All About Eve) join Virginia Mayo and Laurence Harvey in a legendary, once-upon-a-time screen spectacle of knighthood, intrigue and far-flung fields of battle. Richard the Lionhearted (Sanders), leader of the ThirdCrusade, intends to take the fight to Moslem leader Saladin (Harrison) and never suspects that the physician who comes to the Christian camp to tend him is Saladin himself. The wily foe is captivated by the alluring Lady Edith (Mayo), even though errand knight Kenneth (Harvey) also seeks Her Ladyships hand. There is more than war to be settled here. There is love and war. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.It should play in all standard DVD players.
