Erik the Conqueror is a great film in TWO languages.
`Erik the Conqueror', directed by Mario Brava, explores the destinies of two young Viking sons, Erik and Eron. Separated as young men during a British raid by the forces of Queen Anne, the brothers live in two different worlds. Queen Anne raises Erik as her own son, while Eron lives a bitter life. Growing to adulthood, the two men become enemies when Eron leads a Viking horde against the British commanded by Erik. Behind the scenes, a malevolent Sir Rutford, plots to take the throne via marriage, or villainy.
A great battle ensues as the Norsemen attack England, and one death strike short of victory, the two brothers discover each other and declare peace as Rutford plays his card. `Erik the Conqueror' is a stirring action film, filmed on rugged coasts, and executed splendidly in Italian and English!
Cameron Mitchell stars as Eron, while Alice and Ellen Kessler star as Daya and Rama, love interests for the two brothers. George Ardisson, Andrea Checchi and Francoise Christophe round out the well cast film adding realism and romance to this 1961 cult film.
