Two young Saxons, bitter over the Norman predations in
homeland, travel to far Cathay to win their fortunes. Their
journey becomes infinitely more complicated when they
provide unwilling refuge for an enticing girl known as
Filmed expansively in England & North Africa, 20th Century
gave this film excellent production values, with great masses
surging extras & plenty of swashbuckling flurry. The plot
outlandish, based on the novel by Thomas B. Costain, but
doesn't detract from the enjoyment of watching the action
hearing the (often) intelligent dialogue. While not as
fulfilling as the previous year's PRINCE OF FOXES, the film
still able to hold its own for pure entertainment.
At 36, Tyrone Power may be unconvincing as an Oxford
undergraduate, yet he still fills his hero's role with dash
passion. The Technicolor camera isn't always kind to his
good looks, and he's up against a powerful congregation
talented co-stars, yet Power never fails to offer anything
than a satisfying performance.
Jack Hawkins is every bit Power's equal in screen charisma,
making his role as the longbowman sidekick absolutely vital
the story. A lesser actor would have been swamped by Power's
star prerogative, but Hawkins holds his own admirably.
Entrancing French actress Cécile Aubry is very fetching as
girl the heroes reluctantly rescue. With her big eyes &
manner, she provides the film with its most tender moments.
Appearing as the formidable Mongol general Bayan, the
inimitable Orson Welles fills a rather modest role with
megawatt personality. Body swaggering, voice booming, he
effortlessly filches every scene he's in, entertaining the
& obviously amusing Power & Hawkins as well. While not
significant as either Cesar Borgia or Harry Lime - his two
roles of that immediate period - Welles still wrings every bit
cinematic pleasure out of Bayan, as if he were saying,
Look what I can do with even a small part!' The film's
drawback is his abrupt departure from the story line.
The rest of the cast is peppered with fine British actors -
Robertson Justice, craggy Finlay Currie, Michael Rennie,
Herbert Lom, & Laurence Harvey. Mary Clare as a Norman
countess & Madame Phang as the Chinese Empress both give
tiny, vivid portrayals. Movie mavens will recognize an
uncredited Torin Thatcher as a rebellious Saxon. Young
Blake plays a Moslem servant boy. And that's Peter Sellers
dubbing the voice for the oily Lu Chung.
Now for an historical reality check: by the time of the
action, roughly 200 years after the Battle of Hastings in
the difficulties between the Normans & the Saxons had long
since dissipated. The Norman government did much to
modernize & civilize England; this trend continued under
Edward I, whose reign commenced in 1272 and who appears
briefly in the film.
Regardless of what the plot states, the Mongols had long
captured Cathay (China). Genghis Khan had largely completed
this task and ruled a huge empire stretching from the Black
to the Pacific Ocean by the time of his death in 1227.
Power's cinematic journey seems to owe much to that of
historical Marco Polo from Venice, who arrived at Shando, the capital
Genghis' grandson Kublai Khan, in 1275.
