Dame Elizabeth Taylor was too young for the role of Rebecca, and Robert Taylor was too old for the role of Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe.
In the 12th century, at the close of the third crusade to free the Holy Land, the Saxon knight called Wilfred of Ivanhoe undertook a private crusade of his own. England's warrior king Richard the Lionhearted had disappeared during his homeward march...
During the fire at the castle where Ivanhoe and his father and Squire are held captive, one of the soldiers runs to the fight and you can see his sword wobble and shake because it is made of rubber.
