Kitty Hollywood reviews The Prisoner of Zenda


Buckle your swashes folks, this is a ripper. Pretty much every notion that underpins a Noble Adventure springs from this book. Secret passages, drugged wine, drawbridges, royals trains, they are all in this film. Watch it and dream of saving the world.

  1. Thanks again for your classic film review series. Really enjoyable and interesting. I didn't enjoy this film so much the first time I saw it. I think I was expecting a different kind of swashbuckler. The second time I loved it. It walks a fine line between tongue-in-cheek and genuinely stirring. Great dialogue delivered by excellent cast and exactly the right kind of imaginary world created.

  2. I also saw the Stewart Granger remake and the action sequences are different, but as you say almost all the staging and dialogue are the same (exactly the same). I suppose without VHS or DVD copies and only the possibility of a cinema re-release of the original, that was more understandable at the time.
