Movie Info

The story of vagabond poet Francois Villon was made into a play in 1901 by Justin Huntly McCarthy and in 1927 as a musical, The Vagabond King, by Rudolph Friml and Brian Hooker. The original play starred E.H. Sothern; celluloid Villons have included John Barrymore and Ronald Coleman. This version of Villon's life stars William Farnum and was directed by J. Gordon Edwards. The plotline covers familiar terrain -- in his effort to get the peasants to battle against the Burgundians, King Louis XI (Fritz Leiber) temporarily makes Villon the ruler of France. Betsy Ross Clarke plays Katherine, the king's ward who comes to love Villon. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
