This is an adaptation of Howard Pyle's "Men of Iron", and an unusually enjoyable movie from begin to finish. Ignore Tony Curtis's accent; it hardly matters to anyone that young and everyone in the movie is bright, lively and suitable to his/her part. The direction by Rudolph Friend gives a light, sunny feel to the whole piece, and he keeps the action moving splendidly in my judgment. The story is classic. Myles and his sister Meg have been raised as peasants. One day they adventure to Mackworth Castle and enter a fresh world, the globe of noble landowners, quarrelsome young prigs and knights. Myles continues to find for the secret of his origins and finds it in the Library finally, the Black Shield of Falworth, shield of an attainted traitor--his father; of course he was innocent; and when Myles turns out to be a promising young knight of courage and natural skills, he is willing to be knighted in order to war it out--at Prince Hal (the future Henry V's) plan--with the villain of the piece to claim his rightful heritage and wear the family symbol again. Along the way, he falls in love with the daughter of the household and his sister with his greatest mate in the risky and unruly body of young knights. In the cast along with Curtis and Barbara Rush as Meg are Janet Leigh, then Curtis's wife, as his love, Torin Thatcher in top form as the master of knights, David Farrar, Herbert Marshall as Mackworth, Dan O' Herlihy as Prince Hal, Patrick O'Neal as Walter Blunt (very good), and Craig ill as his mate Frances; others in the stellar cast contain Ian Keith as Henry IV, Doris Lloyd, Rhys Williams, Maurice Marsac and others. Melody was supplied by Hans J. Salter, and the screenplay adaptation of Pyle's novel is the work of Oscar Brodney. Irving Glasberg's cinematography is delightfully rich,the art direction by Alexander Golitzen and Richard H. Ledel very nice indeed. Rosemary Odell's costume are worth the price of admission. But this is an in-depth adventurous look behind the grim tapestries that usually baffle the seeker into the late Medieval Age, There is humor in this film, much difficult learning for the young knight-to-be, mystery, skillful dialogue and unusually well-developed characters. This is an enjoyable and memorable work that is bright and lively from begin to finish.
Instead of trying to portray true historical events, Hollywood instead opts for a fictitious storyline set in the England of Henry IV. Nothing wrong with that, of course. Unusually for Hollywood, they now create an effort to receive things right historically, and broadswords are used as broadswords and not as rapiers. The weaponry and military techniques are cute OK for a Hollywood film, and are, on the whole, accurate.The war sequences are very exciting and, along with the training methods, are probably the greatest bits of the film.As to Tony Curtis's accent. Well, we have in Geoffrey Chaucer an authentic concept of what the English language in London was like in the early 15th century. It is ridiculous to write the script in Chaucerian English - not if you wish to fill the cinemas, at any rate. Compare Tony Curtis in Black Shield with Olivier in Henry V. Is Olivier's accent any more correct or authentic? This is not the deepest movie ever made, but there is plenty to play about it.
I'm surprised and delighted to see so many another comments, two or three of them identical to the one I had planned to make. I too saw this film at age 8, and enjoyed it so much, I thought it my favourite film the entire time I was growing up. I haven't seen it since it came out 53 years ago (!) yet I still looked it up, when IMDb was invented. Another tiny men obviously had the same experience I had. My favourite comedy moment (no plot spoiler) at age 8 was the one in which Tony, being disciplined, is forced to keep a cannon ball at arm's length overnight, and in the morning can't place down his arm. The young Janet Leigh was in the movie too? She gotta have been ravishing, but I never even noticed, of course. Hope an affordable DVD comes out which I should share with my son before he's too old to totally play it. Greatest wishes to you another guys. It wasn't your imagination; it really was special, if you were a boy.
