The Lady and the Highwayman Reviews:

Although filmed in 1988, this British made-for-TV film captures the look and feel, the melodrama and romance, even the stagy lighting, of a big-budget 1930s Hollywood swashbuckler. By 1930s standards, it is a first-rate film. By today's standard, well, that's not really a fair standard to judge it by. It lacks the scale and fancy visual results of "Braveheart," or "Gladiator," but in its quirky old-fashioned way, it is a better film than either of them. And it is miles better in each possible method (including historical accuracy) than the egregious BBC/A&E "Charles II" mini-series (USA game "The Last King"), set in the same time period, with many of the same characters, that was broadcast in 2004."The Lady and the Highwayman" is based on a Barbara Cartland romance novel, and set in Restoration England of the 1660s. Yet with a shift of locale, and a slight re-write, it should just as well be a western. Think "Zorro." Indeed it borrows lots of bits and pieces from classic westerns -- such as Hugh Grant's hero jumping from atop a 30 foot wall on to the back of his horse."The Lady and the Highwayman" was filmed in England, using few true period castles and manor houses as locations. Both the detailed sets and the lavish costumes mesh seamlessly with the period buildings. The costume department did a nice job, as much with the soldiers' uniforms, armor, and weapons, as with the courtiers' finery.The cast is excellent, and the dialog, by Terence Feely, was well written. 28-year old Hugh Grant looks young and suave, but doesn't tell a entire lot. The star is young Lysette Anthony, then 25, and she is terrific. Oliver Reed is a menacingly villainous Phillip Gage. Michael York is a dashing Lord Charles II.I just saw the movie on a $1 DigiView DVD sold by WalMart. It was definitely not a digital transfer -- but its graininess and off colors now enhanced the impression of its being a 1930s film, rather than 1980s. It's no classic, but I enjoyed watching it, and I've seen plenty worse. 6/10.For other quirky and retro view of 17th century England, check out "Winstanley" by Kevin Brownlow.


Receive a grip you guys - this is not supposed to be nice theatre. It's a fun, tongue-in-cheek adaptation of your typical bodice-ripper tale only rather better done than most (I'm thinking of the American equivalent offerings such as "Black Swan" (1942) or any of Errol Flynn's efforts). Real - the transcription to DVD is about the worst I've ever seen outside of old kung-fu films but just play it for what it is - an early airing of Hugh Grant's talents with some nice helping actors. Everyone takes their part extremely well - especially Christopher Cazenove as the slimy Rudolph Vyne.


Enjoyable drama based on the romance novel titled ¨The Lady and the Highwayman¨ with luxurious scenarios and spectacular production design ; where a passionate young lady in 17th-century England falling for an outlaw . Nothing too inspired here but seems to be amusing . It's an entertaining movie and regency romance fanatics will appreciate the attention to period feature . TV adaption of the Barbara Catland historical romance finds the young lady Panthea Vyne (Lysette Anthony) falls in love with the handsome rogue nicknamed Silver Sword (Hugh Grant) , a highwayman who saves her from her cruel , wealthy husband (Ian Bannen). He kills him in a fair fencing duel . Lucius Vyne or Silver Sword is wanted for treason and the following reward : one thousand Guineas . Later, when Charles the 2nd (Michael York) is reinstated as Lord of England , superb Panthea attends the royal court along with her uncle (Claire Bloom). But here she becomes the opponent of the king's former mistress (Emma Samms) and unfortunately is framed of killing his former husband . The rebel King Lucius Vyne engaged to marry her and he's sworn to protect . Problem is, she can't marry to him, until to be solved the murder they tell she committed . Lucius attempts to support him clear this accusation , but she is judged , accused and condemned for penalty death : beheading . Meanwhile , a brutal officer (Oliver Reed) hiding a number of secrets is plotting a long-awaited vengeance in a twisted finale . Naturally, such as all Barbara Catland novels there's a satisfied end.This is a TV adaptation of the Barbara Catland romance novel, it displays murder , passion ,swashbuckling , twists , final surprise and consideration to period feature . Nothing too original , although regency romance buffs will value the attention to historical background . This is a costume drama that never quite goes anywhere , though effects to be entertaining and fun . Wel set in a turbulent period when being executed (1649) lord Charles I by beheading , took over a Republican government led Cromwell (1648-1660) , being succeeded by a royal reinstating crowned by Charles II well played by Michael York . Perfect main and secondary casting, as Oliver Reed , John Mills , Michael York as Lord Charles II, Claire Bloom as Lady Emma , Gareth Hunt , Ian Bannen , Christopher Cazenove , and the final movie role of Gordon Jackson , Robert Morley and a very old Bernard Miles as a grumpy judge , among others . The motion picture was professionally directed by John Hough , though with no originality . In fact , belongs to quatrain films directed by Hough , such as 'Hazars of hearts (Helena Bonhan Carter, Marcus Gilbert)', 'A ghost in Monte Carlo (Lysette Anthony, Sarah Miles)' and the best, 'Duel of hearts (Alison Doody , Benedict Taylor , Geraldine Chaplin)'. All of them realized by the same producers (Sir Lew Grade, Albert Farnell), musician (Laurie Johnson : The avengers) , creator (Barbara Catland) and related actors . John Hough has an eclectic and overlong filmmaker career , beginning in tv series (The avengers , The protectors), making Hammer films (Twins of evil), classic terror (Legend of hell house) , average horror films (Howling IV, American Gothic) , family fare (Return and escape to witch mountain). The flick will appeal to romantic drama enthusiasts.
