Editorial Reviews

Oliver Reed, Raquel Welch, Ernest Borgnine, George C. Scott, Charlton Heston. Released in the UK as The Prince and the Pauper , this star-studded twist on Mark Twain's classic social satire is a great flick for the whole family. When a commoner bumps into the Prince (and future King) of Wales and they decide to make a switch of clothes as a practical joke, they are unexpectedly separated and forced to take on the other's life. 1978/color/121 min/NR/fullscreen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Swords Galore February 14, 2009
By Boffin

Nifty flick on the famous Twain twin saga. Just watched this again and realized how professional and well-thought-out it really is. Oliver Reed is great as Miles Hendon, soldier of fortune, with Charlton Heston and Rex Harrison also throwing their weight around. Good fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very, very good, so why has no one given a review yet? February 27, 2008
By M. Lee
Watched this many years ago when it first came out on tape. It's been in the collection since, and I think much underrated. Probably the title, as many don't think of this as "The Prince and the Pauper." Great cast, script, scenes, everything is absolutely topnotch in this effort to create cinema on Mark Twain's first attempt at a fictional "historical novel." You'll enjoy it if you've not yet seen it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best version of Prince and the Pauper April 9, 2008
Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I would recommend it for adults because the vocabulary and content may be too difficult for younger viewers. Very true to book adaptation of Twain's novel - Mark Lester was excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite movies October 23, 2013
Verified Purchase
I have loved this movie since I was a kid. Oliver Reed was never better as the swashbuckling and world weary Miles Hendon. He has strong support from Charlton Heston, Ernest Borgnine, David Hemmings, and the awesome George C Scott. The weakest part was changing Prince Edward from a 10 year old to an 18 year old. It seems they only made the change to have a underdeveloped and insipid love affair for the pauper. Mark Lester as a 10 year old would have been a good choice. However, he never really seems to know what to do with the characters and he has to play two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Job! May 29, 2013

Crossed Swords is a movie that follows the story line of the classic "The Prince and the Pauper." This version is one of the more dramatic, old English style movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prince and Pauper March 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
I have all the versions of Prince and the Pauper. This one is as well done as the others with its own flair.
They all are different from each other and in the totality one gets a feel for the beauty of the author.
The boys are older in this version with Mark Lester playing both sides, whereas others have twin boys
or a single boy as this version. It is a delightful story with uplifting ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting production June 29, 2014
By DJF
Verified Purchase
I found this to be a surprisingly interesting revision of that old story, The Prince and The Pauper, excellently performed by a slew of well known actors. The original was more of a child's story but this version goes well beyond that. For any one interested in such things, I recommend it. I knew the story as a child and am now in myy 80s!!

I enjoy the light side of the telling of King Edward, unfortunately he only ruled for a few years. This Light side of his short life should have been what happened to him.

This was just terrible if you like a movie that's close to the book (The Prince and The Pauper.) Important parts were entirely changed or left out, and the ending was a farce. Read more

This is an excellent telling of "The Prince and the Pauper" starring several of the "Oliver" motion picture cast (in fact, Oliver himself is all grown up as the main character). Read more
