Director, Henry Hathaway's film version of cartoonist, Hal Foster's Scandinavian hero, 'Prince Valiant' is one of those over-blown, wacky-tacky epics; impossible to take seriously, but oh, so much fun to watch. Robert Wagner is the rather effeminate looking title character who takes Camelot by storm. Determined to regain his own throne, Valiant uncovers the treachery of the Black Knight (James Mason, in a toss away role) and challenges him to a showdown. Of course, there's also time for love with bombshell, Princess Aleta (Janet Leigh - who quite often found herself squeezed into a corset during the 1950s.) The film veers wildly between comic book pulp and self-conscious seriousness, but Hathaway's direction ensures that neither becomes the vice to sink his epic. Brian Aherne, as a credible King Arthur, and Sterling Hayden, a not so credible, Sir Gawain also costar. The transfer is pretty good. Colors are generally bold, vibrant and well balanced. Flesh tones seem a bit pasty but that's in keeping with early Cinemascope/Eastman color dye transfers. Shadow, contrast and black levels are generally solid. Rear projection photography is more obvious than it should be. Pixelization and edge enhancement are present but do not terribly distract. The audio is 5.1, delivering a nice spread in the music tracks. Dialogue is not natural sounding, but again, this was usually to be expected for the vintage of the film. This prince is worth a second glance, but it¿s not quite as glamorous as, say 'Scaramouche' so much as it belongs as the bottom half of a double bill at an old-time drive in.

This movie was by far the best movie I'd ever seen in my entire life. I saw it a long time ago and still remember how much I loved it. I highly recommand anyone who loves romance, action suspense and mystery then you should watch this.
