Critic Reviews for Crossed Swords (The Prince and the Pauper)
Charming, funny and great turns from a cast with no finger-wagging. But if you don't like psychosis-inducing imagery, steer clear.
It may not be entirely true to historical fact, but it is entertaining as a group of talented actors try stealing the scene from one another.
A great yarn that has passed the test of time, a good cast, photography by Jack Cardiff and music by Maurice Jarre never hurt any movie and Crossed Swords is good holiday family entertainment.
Audience Reviews for Crossed Swords (The Prince and the Pauper)
Star studded but lackluster version of the Prince and the Pauper. Reed, Scott and Harrison acquit themselves well and Raquel, who has a nothing part, looks beautiful.
