The Long Ships is a rollicking, action-packed Viking adventure saga starring Richard Widmark (Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominee, Kiss of Death, 1947) and Sidney Poitier (Oscar-winning Best Actor,Lilies of the Field, 1963). Viking brothers Rolfe (Widmark) and Orm (Russ Tamblyn, West Side Story)steal the Norse king's funeral ship as well as his beautiful daughter, Gerda (Beba Loncar), and head off in search of the fabled "Mother of Voices," a huge solid-gold bell "as tall as three tall men." The brothers battle a maelstrom, a mutinous crew and vengeful Moorish troops led by Prince El Mansuh (Poitier). Highlighted by rousing battle scenes, daring escapes and humorous interludes, Time magazine stated The Long Ships has "more enjoyable bloody foolishness than many an epic costing three times as much."
