Product Description:

Capitalizing on Larry Parks' "overnight" success in THE JOLSON STORY, Columbia Pictures rushed their hottest new star from one picture to another, whether he was suited to the role or not. In THE SWORDSMAN, Parks makes a valiant stab at swashbucklery, playing an 18th-century Scottish aristocrat named Alexander MacArden. The plot revolves around the "forbidden" romance between Alexander and Barbara Glowan (Ellen Drew) of the hated Glowan clan. Managing to effect a truce between the MacArdens and the Glowans, Alexander has his hands full when a couple of hot-headed clansmen starts up the feud all over again. Full-scale warfare explodes between the rival families, but so long as Alexander has his wits about him and a sword in his sheath, the audience can be assured that he'll straighten things out by the ninth reel. Famed dancer-choreographer Marc Platt is uncomfortably cast as a pugnacious member of the Glowan clan, moving one critic to postulate that Columbia must have had a grudge against Platt. THE SWORDSMAN was directed by Joseph H. Lewis, who'd previously helmed the production numbers in THE JOLSON STORY.

Rating 5.0 The Swordsman (Full Screen) Movie Lover: from Arkansas, USA -- June, 13, 2011

"The Swordsman" closely parallels the story of the "Massacre of Glencoe," but with a happy ending.

Like a true Hollywood recipe:

Take two feuding Clans, stir in insults, then add jealousy. Pour in treachery, and add some murders. Bring to a boil, and let simmer 10 minutes. Serve Hot. Serves the purpose, and makes a good movie. :-)

I recommend both the movie, and the seller to you.
