The Prisoner of Zenda Dee Englishman on a Ruritarian prisinero must impersonate the king when the rightful monarch, a distant cousin, is drugged and kidnapped.
In France during the late 18th Century, a man sets out to avenge the death of his friend at the hands of a master swordsman.
Anthony Hope’s classic tale gets a decidedly ‘un-classic’ treatment at the hands of Peter Sellers. Following the story somewhat, friends of the new King Rudolph of Ruritania fear for his Adventurer Allan Quartermain leads an expedition into uncharted African territory in an attempt to locate an explorer who went missing during his search for the fabled diamond mines of King Solomon.
The King of Ruritania is kidnapped by his scheming brother: A young Viking prince strives to become a knight in King Arthur’s Court and restore his exiled father to his rightful throne.
Dardo, a Robin Hood-like figure, and his loyal followers use a Roman ruin in Medieval Lombardy as their headquarters zendq they conduct an insurgency against their Hessian conquerors. King Arthur’s rule is threatened by the adulterous love between Sir Lancelot and Queen Guinevere, a relationship the king’s enemies hope to exploit.
When the king is drugged and abducted by his ambitious brother, a lookalike relative must take his place to keep the evil sibling off the zdnda. A young orphan is sent to the village of Moonfleet, in Dorset, England to stay with his mother’s former lover, who has the facade of a gentleman but is a leader of a gang of swashbuckling bootleggers. The duo went on a treasure hunt.
English trout fisher Rudolf Rassendyll is about the only tourist not coming for the coronation of Central-European King Rudolf V at Strelsau, but happens to be a distant relative and is approached on account of their canning resemblance to stand in for the drunken king, in order to prevent his envious half-brother Michael, who arranged spiking his wine to seize the throne when the reputedly less then dutiful Rudolf stays away.
The ceremony goes well, and he gets acquainted with the charming royal bride, related princess Flavia, but afterward the king is found to be abducted; he must continue the charade and once the hiding place, the castle of Zenda, is found is involved in the fight between political parties for control over Rudolf V, his throne and his bride, for which a formidable third candidate, Michael’s disloyal co-conspirator Rupert of Hentzau, was waiting in the curtains.
Written by KGF Vissers. If it doesn’t quite have the panache of the Colman film, it makes up for it with the introduction of some nice color cinematography. The casting of Stewart Granger in the double role of Rudolph Rassendyll and his royal cousin, the Crown Prince Rudolph of Ruritania and James Mason as the villainous Rupert of Hentzau is hardly some stock company casting. If Granger doesn’t quite have Colman’s flair for the spoken word and very few ever have, he makes a fine and dashing hero which parts he played very well, too well in his opinion on his career.
As for Mason, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. Mason who has also played some of the best villains on screen keeps up the fine tradition for that role.
The version benefited from having the world wide publicity of the constitutional crisis in the United Kingdom over Edward VIII choice of consort.
Which begs the question whether we’ll get yet another version when Prince Charles eventually assumes the throne. We’ve seen over ten versions so far going back to the silent screen. I’ve always thought that Greer as Antoinette plays one of the most tragic characters in popular literature.
She loves a cold and forbidding man in Prince Michael, especially when played by Robert Douglas. But he’s her man and when she does ever so slightly give in to the scheming Hentzau she regrets it when it means the death of her beloved.
Personally why she falls for a cold fish that Michael is who can figure. But the heart does have its reasons. As for Kerr her best scene is at the end when she realizes she has been hoodwinked, but in a scheme for the greater good of the kingdom. She knows what her obligations are and she too can’t afford to follow her heart. Something tells me we’re far from done with The Prisoner Of Zenda. Try and figure out who could play these roles today with the flair of the players in this version, let alone the one from Start your free trial.
