This spectacular, rousing adventure opens with the Viking army invading the small kingdom of Northumbria, killing its king and forcing her pregnant widow to flee to a new land. Years later, her child, now a young man (Tony Curtis), turns up as a slave in the Viking village, where he meets his half-brother (Kirk Douglas), prince of the Vikings. Their rivalry intensifies and becomes deadly as they fight for the love of a captive princess (Janet Leigh).
