THE SWORD AND THE ROSE (1953) RICHARD TODD DVD

THE SWORD AND THE ROSE (1953) RICHARD TODD DVD



The second of Walt Disney's (British-produced) Historical Fact-based films. The Film takes place in the court of King Henry VIII played by James Robertson Justice, whose sister Mary Tudor played by Glynis Johns, has fallen in love with soldier of fortune Charles Brandon played by Richard Todd. Mary appoints Brandon ‘Captain of the Guard’, which does not go down at all well with the Duke of Buckingham played by Michael Gough. Rather than cause more anguish, Brandon decides to move on to America, only to end up a prisoner in the Tower of London as Mary has come along with him disguised as a boy. Mary is ordered by Henry to marry the aged King of France played by Jean Mercure, who dies shortly afterwards, leaving the young Mary at the mercy of the evil Dauphin played by Gerard Oury. When rescued by the Duke of Buckingham, Mary is informed that Brandon is dead, but in fact he still lives, as he proves beyond doubt in a ferocious battle with the Duke. The Sword and the Rose was based on Charles Major's novel ‘When Knighthood Was in Flower’ and was subject of another film made in 1923 with Marion Davies.
