Black Rose, The -- Colorful 13th-century adventure in which a troubled Saxon noble (Tyrone Power) and a simple bowman (Jack Hawkins) flee Norman England for the Orient where they enter the service of a Mongol general (Orson Welles), aid a Crusader's daughter (Cecile Aubry) and wind up prisoners in a besieged Chinese town. Director Henry Hathaway keeps the pot boiling as the embittered Saxon tests his courage, samples the wisdom of the East and finally returns to England a better man. Stylized violence and mild sexual innuendo. (A-II) 1950
