If Mel Neuhas in his article is writing that Taylor and Gardner appeared together in Ivanhoe , he is mistaken. Elizabeth Taylor and Joan Fontaine, both effective in the film, were the leading ladies. And I think this film flat out stinks.
Knights of the Round Table
Ava Gardner was totaly the wrong person to appear in an English historical story and has limited acting talent. Also although I like Robert Taylor he was not the right actor to play an English Knight. I know why they did it and that was to make it marketable to an American audience. * But the script and the way it was written was very worthy of a story from centuries past. Films being made now and even those by the BBC who should now better are riddled with modern speak and mannerisms coupled with subservience to political correctness such as casting black actors in historical stories of the BRITISH isles going way back beyond the middle ages make me cringe .
Watch for the Stonehenge scene...
At one point, various Knights are having a battle around Stonehenge, and one of them kicks over one of the huge Stonehenge uprights!
A Colorful Epic of Bravery and Honor.
