Retrieved 12 November Archived from the original on 31 May Bunuel 18 December I know this was shown on Italian TV during my childhood but I'm not sure whether I had watched the film in its entirety - after this viewing, I certainly didn't recollect much of anything and, therefore, consider it as a first!
Unlike that one shot in black-and-white on studio setshowever, this was splashed with color and had the benefit of location photography: still, it's a much inferior spectacle, and the main reason for this is that the plot itself singularly lacks excitement - despite being basically an No Point Runnin - Black Rose (5) - The Early Years & More - Remastered (CD) of Ivanhoe starting off in medieval England with our Saxon hero opposing the Norman rulers and Marco Polo he eventually travels to the Orient and brings back samples of their exotic heritage.
Also, despite the imposing presence of Orson Welles as a fearsome but noble Mongol warrior, there's precious little action in this two-hour film though it's never actually boring!
Despite the Fox banner, this was a British-based production and, consequently, the supporting cast and technical credits are nothing to sneeze at - the former including such stalwarts as Jack Hawkins an unlikely but amiable bowman and Power's sidekickMichael Rennie, Finlay Currie as Power's proud and cantankerous grandfatherHerbert Lom, James Robertson Justice and Laurence Harvey impossibly young as a Norman princeas well as Alfonso Bedoya whose voice was allegedly dubbed by Peter Sellers!
The weakest link in the film is clearly leading lady Cecile Aubry, who struggles too hard to be winsome but results only in being irritating most of the time not surprisingly, her career wasn't a long-lasting one. A fine classic adventure story with a beautiful and exotic heroine. When I was a boy, I fell in love with Cecile Aubrey. I watched this film whenever it was shown on TV, and that was in the days of black and white.
I didn't even know the movie was filmed in color. The characters and story line will hold your interest from first to last. Catch it if you can. An all time favorite action flick with drama, memorable scenes, top notch performances, especially Orson Welles and Jack Hawkins, and a bit of romanticized history thrown in for good measure.
Welles' best role of the decade, comparable to his performance as Cesare Borgia. Hard to beat the drama in the "archery" scene. This movie has it all. Action, adventure, intrigue, romance, humor, etc. The cast is superb, even though some of the characters are played by people of the wrong ethnicity, as was common in Hollywood in those days. Somehow Orson Welles is believable as a Mongol warlord. The interaction of Walter and Tris is really touching without being sweet.
I never saw or heard of the girl who played Maryam again, but she was perfect for this role. I've loved this movie since I was a young person, and I've seen it probably 20 times. I never get tired of it. After I grew up, I found the book in paperback, and was delighted to find that Hollywood had been very faithful to the book. I've since found a used hardback copy of the book and enjoy reading it every ten years or so. Anyone who loves old movies, especially those which bring a great book to life, will love The Black Rose.
Doylenf 4 October Thomas B. All of the desert scenes are filmed in Morocco to great effect, but the script never allows any of the characters to come alive. Power struggles manfully with a part that seldom allows him to swing into action, while Jack Hawkins as a skilled bowman who can hit his targets accurately has a little more to do than Power and does it well.
He's particularly effective in a scene involving his marksmanship while the Tartan general watches, the penalty for losing being losing his head. But all the other events provide nothing but the eye candy of seeing Tyrone Power and his fellow players wearing colorful costumes. As an action adventure, this one fails to deliver the goods and there is a less than robust background score by Richard Addinsell.
Trivia note: Power does not even attempt a British accent while Hawkins, of course, already has one. Cecil Aubry should have been dubbed or replaced by someone who could be understood. Summing up: Too much talk, too little action for an historical romance of this kind. Terrell-4 No Point Runnin - Black Rose (5) - The Early Years & More - Remastered (CD) February And what's a black rose?
We're told it is the name given to the clove, the most precious of spices. In this case, the clove is Maryam, played by Cecile Aubry. She was a small French actress, discovered, it is said, by producer Darrell F.
Zanuck, and who looks no older than She has a small mouth which is filled with tiny teeth and a plump tongue, and she occasionally jumps about to express enthusiasm. The movie, The Black Rose, is no stinker, but it suffers from Aubrey in the role. Unfortunately, it also suffers because Tyrone Power, playing Walter No Point Runnin - Black Rose (5) - The Early Years & More - Remastered (CD) Gurnie, a young scholar in his early twenties, looks every bit the year- old man he was.
The one insuperable drawback to the movie is its disjointed nature. We move from Norman England years after William the Conqueror, to the middle-east and then on to a Mongol army moving and battling its way toward China, then to the imperial court of China itself, and finally back to England.
We have a movie which is part historical adventure, part travelogue, part uneasy romance and, with Orson Welles playing the Mongol general Bayan with false eyelids, chubby cheeks and greasy skin, part succulent ham. The movie features some great scenic set-ups, interesting acting in one or two of the secondary parts, particularly by Jack Hawkins, and a nice look at a marching mongol horde, but on balance I think it is one of Power's weakest romantic-adventure films.
Walter of Gurnie, the illegitimate son of a Saxon lord who had married a Norman woman, is a hot-headed Oxford student who has left his studies when he heard his father has died. He hates, with good reason, the Normans. One night he joins a band of fellow Saxons led by Tristram Griffin Jack Hawkinsan excellent bowman, in an attack on the castle which had been his father's.
He planned to free some Saxon hostages held by his step-mother and her son, as well as to claim the boots his father had left in his father's will. In this will his father had publicly acknowledged him as his son. As a result of the attack, Walter and Tris must flee, and Walter decides they should go adventuring to Cathay to win gold, jewels and fame. Along No Point Runnin - Black Rose (5) - The Early Years & More - Remastered (CD) way he meets the great Mongol general, Bayan of the Hundred Eyes, who takes an interest in the two.
Walter and Tris also are tricked into hiding a young woman, Maryam, who is one of dozens of maidens being sent to the Great Khan and who are traveling with Bayan's army. After battles and marches, archery contests, chess games and a walk along the rope of death, Walter is sent to the Chinese court to explain how powerful Bayan is and why the Chinese should surrender the imperial city.
Now we have luxurious surroundings, manicured gardens, treacherous mandarins, No Point Runnin - Black Rose (5) - The Early Years & More - Remastered (CD), jewels sewn into coats and a harrowing escape in which Walter and Maryam are separated.
Finally, we're back in England, where the king honors Walter for his bravery and for bringing back the knowledge of the Chinese. All seems settled except for his lost love for Maryam. Will they be reunited? And how? See the movie. Tyrone Power was Zanuck's champion swashbuckler. Power was, for me, a very earnest actor. In his early years he had great good looks. As he aged, his face thickened a bit, his eyebrows grew dense and his five-o-clock shadow must have been a real challenge for Fox's make-up artists.
He was an actor who longed to show he could do more than prance around the scenery with a sword in his hand. In two movies, Nightmare Alley and Witness for the Prosecution, he fought for the chance to show he could handle unpleasant roles, and he did very well.
Yet for the most part he stayed safely playing conventional star heroes. He died of a heart attack when he was only He was filming, what else, a dueling scene for one more big, expensive and forgettable adventure movie.
For those who enjoy reading sweeping historical adventures, you might like the source book, The Black Rose by Thomas B. It's one of those big, fat novels that goes from adventure to adventure. Costain probably is barely remembered now.
He was a Canadian journalist who, in his early sixties, unexpectedly struck it rich as a popular novelist. For ten years he wrote best selling fiction and well-respected popular histories. His fiction is packed with well-researched history and his histories read like well-written novels.
The Black Rose is still a good read. Growing up in the 50's and 60's, this was one of a handful of movies that had a HUGE influence on me, and though it did NOT adhere faithfully to the Costain novel, that was typical of the time, and though much had been cut from the storyline, still, it WAS fairly fleshed out in terms of what they'd kept!!
The acting IS well-done,the cast well-chosen! I have always loved this film for its fairy tale quality. Sure Power is mature to play a student--IMO, the screenwriters, producers and director are to blame for not coming up with a script adjustment--but he is a highly romantic leading man, who is wonderful to look at and fully invested in the action. He is marvelous as well at connecting throughout with all the other actors as he always does.
It should be noted that Jack Hawkins is too old for his role, too. In the book and in the film the character of Tris is also a student and contemporary of Power's character. But what of it? He's great and he and Power have good "buddy film" chemistry. In addition to the two wonderful leads,The Black Rose has a nice cast of supporting actors, an attractive score, and lavish sets and costumes to illustrate this purely fanciful story.
I personally like Orson Wells only in minor roles such as this one, since for my taste he tends to overact and chew the scenery. Cecile Aubrey, the female lead is unusual and plays it rather naive, but it fits well with her odd character. I recommend The Black Rose to anyone who likes old time movies that transport you to far away places and times. The Black Rose is an extremely uninvolving film, due both to its unfocused script and the miscasting of Tyrone Power and Cecile Aubrey.
Power is far too old to play an Oxford student who has dropped out of college. A 20 year old in the part might have made the hot-headedness of the character acceptable, but Power was 36 when he made this, and watching him behave this way simply made me think he was immature or nasty and vindictive. Cecile Aubrey is truly awful.
She comes across as a child, and has no sex appeal or chemistry with Power. There will be something in the Cash catalogue you would enjoy. I have the vinyl box of those and love them all. Both your mentioned albums are not Mercury Recordings — and can be found easily cheap everywhere. How come the prices on the many amazon sites differ so much? Is it not the same product and the same seller?
That is true, but the price of the compilation CD is more than double in France than the price in the UK. I understand that prices vary but not for a new product. The price of new products vary a lot from when they are announced to when they are released. No point trying to understand it. She was really pleased with it. Both my parents were Cash fans long before I cottoned on.
Incant remember the name of it. A couple of these Cash albums were never personally appealing for me but the box as a whole looks pretty good. Your email address will not be published.

A-side "No Point Runnin'" is sappy, crappy, and overlong; not the worst NWOBHM I've ever heard, and the solo is pretty rocking, but it's absolutely a skipper. It rides the same weak riff throughout, and it sounds as if it should be in the introduction to a real song that never starts.
