Product Description

Ivanhoe (DVD)

Amazon.ca

Among the most exciting of MGM swashbucklers, Richard Thorpe's 1952 Ivanhoe stars Robert Taylor as the medieval hero of Sir Walter Scott's novel. Returning to England from the Third Crusades, Ivanhoe is steadfast in his determination to raise the ransom for the captured King Richard (Norman Wooland), but the effort is full of peril. First is Ivanhoe's reunion with his estranged father (Finlay Currie), a Saxon who hates the Norman king and refuses to give his son the money. Then there's Ivanhoe's unpopular rescue of a wealthy Jew, Isaac (Felix Aylmer), from anti-Semites, and the subsequent decision by Isaac's beautiful daughter, Rebecca (Elizabeth Taylor), to pay Ivanhoe's entry fee in a tournament. (The strapped knight seeks the tourney's cash prize.) Wait, it gets worse: two of Ivanhoe's closest associates (played by George Sanders and Robert Douglas) collude with Richard's evil brother, Prince John (Guy Rolfe), to discredit their friend and steal away Rebecca and another woman, Rowena (Joan Fontaine)--who also fancies Ivanhoe--for themselves. Yes, the situation looks grim, but surprise appearances by a couple of legendary hero types toward the end help level the playing field. Nonstop adventure to make one swoon, Ivanhoe is a gorgeous treat and reasonably faithful to the Age of Chivalry. Things worked out so well for this film, Thorpe and Taylor got together the next year to make Knights of the Round Table. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Robert Taylor and Director Richard Thorpe team up for their first of two (Knights of the Round Table in 1953) epic tales of noble knights and beautiful damsels in this well made adaptation of the 1819 Sir Walter Scott classic, nominated in 1952 for three Academy Awards, including Best Picture. It is, of course, the classic retelling of one man's, Wilfred of Ivanhoe, quest to restore Richard The Lion-Hearted (Norman Wooland) to the throne stolen by his evil brother, Prince John (Guy Rolfe). But with all its feats of derring-do, this version is also a tender tale of love. Robert Taylor stars as the intrepid Saxon knight-errant Wilfred of Ivanhoe, who is charmed by not one fair lady, but two; the stunningly beautiful Rebecca (Elizabeth Taylor) and the stately Saxon princess Rowena (Joan Fontaine). In striking contrast to this romantic feast, there is the malevolent Sir Brian De Bois-Guilbert (George Sanders), Ivanhoe's deadly enemy and constant threat. This film features some very authentic looking and spectacular fighting sequences and is sure to become a favorite film of students of 12th-century English history. Filmed entirely on location in Great Britain, this movie is very rich in detail, including costumes and weaponry. Very representative of the Metro Goldwyn Mayer classics, this is a very good film somewhat typical of the film making of this decade, but still good enough to be enjoyed in modern day. If you somehow missed this one, give it a look; An excellent movie !!!

The book Ivanhoe is one of my favorites, and so I was looking forward to seeing the 1952 movie, the only movie pairing of Elizabeth and Robert Taylor. And I'm a big swashbuckler fan, so I was expecting to enjoy this movie. Well, I didn't! First of all, it wasn't very faithful to the book. The screenwriter and director altered a lot, and not to my liking! Robert Taylor was stiff as a board, without any of the verve that characterized his swashbuckling predecessors such as Errol Flynn. Liz Taylor never smiles, Finlay Currie's a poor substitute for C. Aubrey Smith, George Sanders isn't much of a villain and Joan Fontaine just doesn't have that much to do! In some ways, the 1938 version of Robin Hood sticks closer to the original than this does. Putting that aside, even by Hollywood swashbuckler standards, overall this is kind of a tired movie. I'd recommend the 1982 Ivanhoe with Anthony Andrews as more faithful to the book and generally more interesting.

This is one of those movies that wrap you up in the story and the adventure. There are many find actors that do not overwhelm the character they play. However you do notice right off James Mason as Isaac of York because of the strange attire. An odd surprise is the inclusion of the Herald, John Hallam who also plays Cedric Crackenthorpe in "Miss Marple: 4:50 from Paddington".

As with the movie Avalon where King Arthur is just a part of the story, it is interesting to find Robin Hood, of which many movies were made, to be just a part of this story. Usually these films leave everything in black and white (good or bad) however this version did have shades of gray in the story and people. Even Sam Neill as a de Bois-Guilbert was a good-bad guy. He had to choose between faith, courage, love, and honor and usually picks the wrong side but realizes this too late.

The story line follows fairly true, of which I will not repeat, as that is why you are buying the film. It is the getting there that makes this film interesting.

There have been many versions of Sir Walter Scott's classic 1819 swashbuckling story "Ivanhoe", over the years but few of them come near MGM's well crafted and rousing 1952 version that reteamed the two Taylors (Robert and Elizabeth), for the second time. This version benefits greatly from being filmed on location in England, taking full advantage of the nature terrain which gives this film such an authentic feel and flavour. It marked another late career triumph for veteran MGM star Robert Taylor who was fresh from appearing in the blockbuster "Quo Vadis", in Rome when MGM sent him this time to England to take the lead role of Sir Walter Scott's heroic character fighting injustice in the medieval England of Prince John. This film has everything the swashbuckler fan could ask for, daring sword play, a beautiful leading lady, wonderous recreations of 12th Century England, and stunning action sequences filmed on the largest outdoor Castle set ever constructed by MGM while it had a studio in England.
The adventure story of the dashing knight Wilfred of Ivanhoe who champions the cause of the absent King Richard the Lion Hearted while he is away with the crusades is well known to most school age children but this film version is no mere comic book characterisation. Robert Taylor found a real niche late in his career playing these hero's of early English history and in "Ivanhoe",he is perfectly cast as the dashing knight who not only fights the wrong doers trying to steal King Richard's throne, but finds time to romance two beautiful women in Saxon princess Lady Rowena (Joan Fontaine), and the lovely young Jewess Rebecca (Elizabeth Taylor). The opening of the film finds Richard's throne usurped by his younger brother the wicked Prince John (Guy Rolfe).
