Dardo, a Robin Hood-like figure, and his loyal followers use a Roman ruin in Medieval Lombardy as their headquarters as they conduct an insurgency against their Hessian conquerors.
Nick Cravat, who plays Piccolo, was an acrobat who was teamed with Burt Lancaster before Lancaster became a star. He appears in many of Lancaster's movies. In this one, and in The Crimson Pirate (1952), he plays a mute. The reason was that his thick Brooklyn accent, which he could not lose, would have been wildly out of place in such period pieces.
Marchese Alessandro de Granazia:
If only I could be sure you're as honest as you are pretty, but then with a collar around your neck... it's hard to tell whether your throat's blushing from passion or deceit.
When Piccolo is fighting the guardsman in the balcony he flips his sword around and holds the blade with his hand (showing it cannot be sharp) and then whacks the guardsman with the broad side of the blade near the hilt, bending it at least 20-25 degrees.
