Overview

Partly conceived as a follow-up to Prince of Foxes, 20th Century-Fox's The Black Rose, reunites the earlier film's two stars, Tyrone Power and Orson Welles. Filmed on location in England and Morocco, the story concerns 13th-century Saxon nobleman Walter of Gurnie Tyrone Power, who, after sparking an unsuccessful rebellion against the Norman conquerors of his homeland, sets out to seek his fortune in the Far East. In the company of his friend Tristam Jack Hawkins, Walter makes the acquaintance of megalomanic North African warlord Bayan Orson Welles. Journeying farther, Walter and Tristam arrive in China, where they are treated with deference--so long as they never try to leave. Eventually escaping his Chinese hosts, Walter returns to his native country. Previously renounced by King Edward Michael Rennie because of his role in the a Saxon rebellion, Walter is welcomed back with open arms because of all the cultural and scientific wonders he's brought back from China including gunpowder. The "Black Rose" of the title is the beauteous Maryam Cecile Aubrey, with whom Walter fell in love while both were the prisoners of Bayan. A bit lacking in terms of spectacular adventure sequences, Black Rose scores points on its star power and splendid Technicolor photography.

    Better than the film gurus say...

    This is an interesting, well-acted old time movie. Don't think you'll ever see a younger Laurence Harvey. The story of a young Saxon's journey from medieval England to China & back in search of himself & his heritage. Tyrone is a bit old for the young Saxon, but still convincing. Orson Welles & the largely British supporting cast are excellent. Sit back & enjoy this one in spite of the "experts."
