In common with most young boys of my generation, I grew up reading the novels of Walter Scott, RL Stevenson and Alexandre Dumas, but Scott's Ivanhoe and The Talisman were by far and away my favourite books which I re-visited time again throughout junior and senior school years.
I like this film version of Ivanhoe, it may not be as gritty or period realistic as the 1997 BBC mini-series but it is still good and actually closer to the Walter Scott novel that any other version.
The acting from the strong, mainly British cast manages to carry the plot forward through a screenplay that is occaisionally overly worded and once or twice a bit slow, but this minor flaw is compensated for by the slick action scenes and well delivered dialogue, much of which is taken straight from Scott and the truely moving performance (as ever) by James Mason.
In my opinion this production of Ivanhoe falls pretty well mid-way between the 1952 MGM Robert Taylor movie and the 1997 Stephen Waddington and Christopher Lee versions, and actually has less continuity errors than either !

I discovered this version of Ivanhoe by accident while searching for movies starring Anthony Andrews and what a gem this turned out to be. This is English period drama at its best with an all star cast of Anthony Andrews, Sam Neil, Michael Horden, James Mason, Lysette Anthony, Olivia Hussey, John Rhys Davies, Julian Glover, David Robb and Michael Gotthard to name but a few.
The movie is based on the Novel of the same name by Sir Walter Scott - Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe had gone off on Crusades with King Richard to the disapproval of his own father and consequently his father had disowned and disinherited him. In their absence a villainous alliance had developed between the King's brother Sir John and some Knights from a secret order in France hoping to help John steal the throne.

The year is 1194 and noble knight Wilfred of Ivanhoe has returned from the Crusades to regain his title and claim the hand of his beloved Lady Rowena. But first he must defeat this villainous alliance and restore the throne to Richard. He is helped by King Richard who has also returned and Robin of Sherwood and his men. This is a very heart warming romantic tale with Knightly chivalry and lessons in ancient history laced with humour and comedic timing. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie with my family. If you love historical or period drama's this is one not to miss.
This DVD is region 1, so will play on region one or multi-region DVD player, with subtitles in English only. The only bonus features are previews of the Norman Lear's collection, First Knight, A Knight's tale, Nora Roberts - 4 films- Montana Sky, Angels Falls, Carolina Moon and Blue Smoke and The Class .

Format: DVD
An excellent portrayal of a great English classic-and the closes portrayal of the by book by Sir Walter Scott that I have seen. the pageantry, the colour, the action and suspense.
England during the reign of King Richard (Julian Glover) , who is away on the Crusades to the Holy Land , leaving the administration of the country to his scheming brother , John (Ronald Pickup) , and his corrupt court cronies like Brian de Bois Gilbert (Sam Neill) , Maurice De Bracy (Stuart Wilson) and Front-de-Bouef (played with perfect villainy by John Rhys-Davies).
Meanwhile a mysterious Disinherited Knight, aided by another anonymous Knight in black amour (Le Noir Fainéant) defeats all of King John's favourite knights at the jousting tournament at Ashby.
The challenger is revealed as Wilfred of Ivanhoe (Anthony Andrews), the disinherited son of the Saxon nobleman, Cedric (Michael Horden) , who is the beloved of his father's charge, the comely Rowena.
Meanwhile Ivanhoe is nursed back to health by Rebecca (played by an incredibly sexy Olivia Hussey), the beautiful daughter of Isaac of York (played with pathos and passion by Jamnes Mason) and after Cedric, Rowena, Ivanhoe and Isaac and Rebecca are captured by the Normans , and Rebecca is sentenced to death by fire by the Knights Templars for witchcraft, she must find a champion who will be Ivanhoe. Rebecca, faced with a horrific fate, refuses to renounce her faith, right until the end
I found this quite a riveting and engaging version. Torquilstone castle was just how I pictured when reading the book.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I first saw this marvellous dramatisation of Sir Walter Scott's "Ivanhoe" many years ago and have cherished a time-worn copy on VHS tape. There is a great deal of action throughout the story, from the clash of knights over two consecutive days at the Ashby tournament, through the assault on Torquilstone castle to the final hand to hand combat between Ivanhoe and Brian de Bois-Guilbert. The atmosphere of medieval England is beautifully evoked, and with two exceptions, a fine cast brings this classic to powerful life. Lysette Anthony is an insipid Lady Rowena and David Robb's immaculate Robin Hood appears to have stepped out of the wardrobe department of an Errol Flynn version of Robin Hood. These are small quibbles. Lovers of fine historical drama will enjoy this film as they would an excellent wine. However, I have to concede that this film is unlikely to appeal to those with short attention spans or those who like massive sprays of blood associated with every sword stroke.
