From Richard Fleischer, the outstanding director of Armored Car Robbery, The Vikings, The New Centurions and The Don Is Dead, comes this swashbuckling adventure-comedy starring Oliver Reed (The Hunting Party), Raquel Welch (One Million Years B.C.), Mark Lester (Sudden Terror), Ernest Borgnine (Marty), George C. Scott (They Might Be Giants), Rex Harrison (Midnight Lace), Charlton Heston (The War Lord), David Hemmings (Juggernaut), Harry Andrews (The Internecine Project), Felicity Dean (The Whistle Blower) and Sybil Danning (Nightkill). Crossed Swords is a dazzling action film adapted from Mark Twain’s classic The Prince and the Pauper. Tom (Lester), a poor commoner, accidentally meets Edward, Prince of Wales (also Lester), and they are struck by their similarity of appearance. After switching clothes as a practical joke, they are unexpectedly separated and forced to take on the other’s life. Everything goes completely haywire when the King suddenly dies, leaving Tom to inherit the throne while Edward must convince the people that he is really the new King of England.
DVD Extras Include:
NEW Interview with Star Mark Lester
