DVD Synopsis and information:
acting and great production values in this epic with Charlton Heston.
This film happened to mark the first collaboration between Oscar
winners Chuck Heston and Franklin Schaffner, who later directed
Charlton Heston and Maurice Evans in the original Sci Fi Epic Planet of
the Apes. In the 11th century, the extremely powerful Duke William of
Ghent sends his most skilled and trustworthy knight, Chrysagon, played
by Charlton Heston, and a troop of his finest warriors to guard
Normandy's beach front settlements from pillage and plunder by the dark
and marauding Frisian raiders.
Smitten with Bronwyn, played
wonderfully by Rosemary Forsyth, the foster child of village elder
Odins, played by Niall MacGinnis, the war lord is tempted simply to take
her for himself, under the feudal custom of droit de seigneur, but
finds he is falling in love with this woman and the journey begins.
energy and design in this film are terrific. John Collier (Sylvia
Scarlett) and Oscar nominee Millard Kaufman (Bad Day at Black Rock)
adapted this sweeping historical romance from a play by the late Leslie
Stevens, who also created TV's The Outer Limits. Heston and the support
cast are simply magnificent in this film. The War Lord DVD is an often unjustly overlooked Heston film that offers rich characters, story and set design for a fine epic style motion picture. The War Lord DVD remains a wonderful classic film with Heston at his best.
Charlton Heston gives one of his best performances from the 60s in The War Lord DVD.
