St. George is little more than a ‘callow Yoot’ but he takes on those Seven Curses like a champ. Before he fell afoul of the murderous HAL, we can see that Gary Lockwood was a hell of survivor, dodging monsters, witch-hags, fiery pits, etc., that snare his fellow noble nights on the quest to save Da Princess. Bert I. Gordon’s most polished production benefits from spirited thesping from Estelle Winwood and Basil Rathbone, and Maila ‘Vampira’ Nurmi is in for a guest spot. Tim Lucas waxes nostalgic for this kiddie saga, and reviewer Charlie Largent retains good childhood memories too. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
