SYNOPSIS

In the late twelfth century, Sir Cedric's son Ivanhoe returns to England fresh from battle in the Holy Land. As Ivanhoe, disguised, discovers that his beloved Lady Rowena has remained faithful, two weary travelers, Isaac of York and his pretty daughter Rebecca, are admitted to Sir Cedric's castle, but after the knights, led by de Bois Guilbert, learn that Isaac has money, they abduct the visitors to the Norman stronghold of Torquilstone Castle. When Ivanhoe realizes that Sir Cedric and Rowena have also been captured, he enters the forest, where he meets Robin Hood and the Black Knight, actually King Richard, the Lion-Hearted. Their band defeats de Bois in battle, but the villain escapes with Rebecca, later charging her with sorcery.

Sadly, Rebecca witnesses the nuptials of her gallant Ivanhoe and the beautiful ... +
