Academy Award winner Burt Lancaster stars as a medieval Italian hero who fights the barbarian invaders in the swashbuckling The Flame and the Arrow. In the heartland of the country that had once ruled the known world, the descendants of Roman soldiers have been conquered by German Hessians. But one man, Dado (Lancaster--Field of Dreams, Elmer Gantry), leads a brave band of patriots in the battle against the Germans. Now, when Dado's former wife (Virginia Mayo) decides to wed his sworn enemy, the German Count Ulrich (Frank Allenby), the fight becomes personal.
