The Tartars DVD
The banks of the Volga threaten to run red in this elaborate Italian-lensed costume actioner, as Viking chief Victor Mature's slaying of a Russian Tartar leader causes Tartar overlord Orson Welles to up the ante by taking the Norseman's wife (Liana Orfei) as a plaything for the troops. Bella Cortez, Luciana Morin co-star; Richard Thorpe directs. 83 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
