Crossed Swords Reviews

A standard remake of Twain's classic tale about identical twins--one a prince, the other a pauper, both played with fine comic timing by Lester. A star-studded cast helps elevate the tame direction, with the most memorable performances coming from Scott and Borgnine. Welch's beauty is enhanced by some excellent photography--but Ward, in a bit part shines the most.
