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.
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 !
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.
