Overview

The classic adventure novel by Sir Walter Scott, which covers the same ground as the various Robin Hood legends, becomes this impressive television production, boasting a well-heeled British cast, a robust pace, and solid production values. Wilfred of Ivanhoe (Anthony Andrews) is a young Saxon knight of 12th century England. Returning home from fighting in the Crusades alongside King Richard the Lionheart (Julian Glover), Ivanhoe finds that the nation is now under the dictatorial thumb of the king's brother, Prince John (Ronald Pickup) and the prince's thuggish Norman cohorts. He is also dismayed to learn that his longtime love, Lady Rowena (Lysette Anthony), has been betrothed to another man. Determined to restore throne and country to Richard, the courageous Ivanhoe has soon run afoul of those in power, though a few rebellious types like Robin Hood (David Robb) are on his side. Ivanhoe also finds love again, with the lovely Jewish girl Rebecca (Olivia Hussey), though she and her wise father Isaac of York (James Mason) face Norman persecution for their religious faith. Ivanhoe also finds a deadly rival in the cynically twisted knight Brian de Bois-Guilbert (Sam Neill).

First saw this as television movie back in the 80's. Have been looking for a copy ever since. Fun to watch with some good well known actors.

And so is Olivia Hussey. If I were rating how well the novel is represented on screen, I'd give 4 stars. But the movie certainly deserves full credit for just being awesome and enjoyable to watch - as well as capturing the spirit of the novel. Rowena is good and faithful, but Rebecca is beyond admirable. The movie truly shows that. The scenes between Ivanhoe and Rebecca are charged and exciting. While the A&E version may be slightly more accurate to Sir Walter Scott's plot, I think this version better portrays his characters. It's more natural to identify with and care for the characters in this adaptation than in any other. It's easy to understand and would certianly appeal to a wide audience. A definite MUST WATCH!
