Video: The Vagabond King
#1
I loved this movie when I was a kid. While visiting my grandparents one summer I watched the movie every day for a week on a local TV station. They ran the same movie starting at noon, Monday through Friday.

The video quality is not very good. I'm sure that's why it has remained untouched on YouTube for over 8 years. But the audio track is pretty good. The story fictionalizes the life of Francois Villon, considered the greatest French poet of the 1400s, and the conflict between King Louis XI and Charles the Bold of Burgundy. The fact that all three men lived at the same time is about the only historical accuracy in the movie's plot.

This is a full-on musical with several songs. The movie was adapted from a successful stage play.

I watched the movie today for the first time in many years. I can appreciate the subtlties of some of the scenes much better than I did when I was young. It's a fast-moving story and represents a period in Hollywood film history when imaginative sets and costuming dominated what passed for fantasyesque movies.
