    Synopsis


    Alfred the Great
    While Olde England is being ransacked by roving Danes in the 9th century, Alfred (David Hemmings) is commencing to join the priesthood. But observing the rape of his motherland, he puts aside his religious vows to take up arms against the invaders, leading the English Christians to fight for their country. Alfred soundly defeats the Danes and becomes an English hero. But now, although Alfred still longs for the priesthood, he is torn between his passion for God and his lust for blood. After marrying the beautiful Aelhsweth (Prunella Ransome), he gives himself over to his dark side and aggressively rapes his wife. At this point, the Danes return and Alfred must muster the English forces once again for a decisive battle, but he also must battle his conflicting soul. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

      This is an interesting historical action movie set in England in the 9th century C.E. Alfred reluctantly becomes King and leads his people against the Danish Vikings who raid the country on a regular basis. I liked Michael York as the Danish Leader who wants to carve out a Kingdom in England.

      This is a good movie, and I was glad to find it on DVD. I wasn't sure, because it's old, and I hadn't seen it in about 40 years.
