"Here is a thinking person's historical swashbuckler, very satisfying and enjoyable and full of ironic wit. Welles is in the zone here and Ty seems to relish his chance to play an anti-heroic lead ala Nightmare Alley. Plus, Everett Sloane is loosed on a major role and relishes ever minute.

The location shooting as well as the stark yet rich B&W cinematography may put you in mind of later Welles' films including his Othello and Chimes at Midnight. There's also a cool touch of having burning oiled poured off a battlement splashing up on the lens, as well as the subjective eye-gouging scene."
Excellent movie

""Prince of Foxes" was one of Tyrone Powers' best performances. Orson Welles was superb as "Cesare Borgia"....the supporting cast....led by Everett Sloan made this little known "Classic". Worth every penny."
Same as original pic?

"I agree with the general tone of the above reviews. Indeed, Welles proved once again his extraordinary Thespian ability. However, I'm glad it wasn't filmed in color, which I have always considered appropriate for musicals and travelogues. For nuance, mood and character, you can't beat B&W. I'm sorry, but for some reason color seems to shift the emphasis more from highbrow to lowbrow art, providing less opportunity for the creative cinematographer. Please forgive my foppish airs, but you gotta respect my old gray head. Another thing: as my creaky old brain seems to recall, when I saw the film in '49 everyone in the theatre gasped at the eye gouging scene, and Sloane's subterfuge was explained in flashback. Can anyone set the record straight with some certainty?"

"Muy buena película de aventuras, de gran ritmo, y unos escenarios de fondo bellísimos, con gran belleza plástica. Tyrone Power, como siempre, con un papel lleno de matices, sobrio y excelente. Los extras de la edición en DVD son muy curiosos para los mitómanos, que los apreciarán como un tesoro."
