TheVikings1_optBitter hatred divides two brothers. Prince Einar (Douglas) is the son and heir of a savage Viking chieftain. Prince Eric (Curtis) is his unknowing half-brother, the bastard offspring of Einar’s father and an English queen. When the Vikings kidnap a princess Morgana (Leigh), her beauty inflames the desires of both men, forcing a bloody duel that decides their fate… and the future of the English throne.

Beautifully shot by the great Jack Cardiff (Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes), The Vikings is competently directed by  Richard Fleischer (Soylent Green).

Special features on the Blu-ray include “A Tale of Norway” featurette with director Richard Fleischer and a selection of trailers
