Routine action programmer offers a rather hammy De Cordova playing a Robin Hood role in 1793 Sicily, battling the oppressive Austrian occupiers and wooing a host of love-starved ladies; he is sometimes exceptional in the partisan attacks and wields a mean blade in well-choreographed

swordfights. John Sutton is at his oily best as an insidious envoy of the Austrian monarch, and Bremer is a convincing female lead. Highlight of the film is a 10-minute swordfight between De Cordova and Sutton, with the latter ultimately pierced through the middle. Bey and Tobias as the great

lover's sidekicks are intriguing, the former for his exotic mannerisms, the latter for his funny bumbling and for an accent that would be acceptable only in contemporary Brooklyn.

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
