In eleventh century England, King Edward the Confessor wants Saxon Lord Leofric to marry a despised Norman woman, and has him jailed when he refuses. In jail, he meets Godiva, the Sheriff's sister, and soon they are wed. The times are turbulent and Godiva proves to be a militant bride. Unrest between the Anglo-Saxon populace and the increasingly influential Norman French lead to her famous ride.Written by

The screenplay is often confused and muddled ,and one sometimes find it hard to tell the traitors from the good guys ,but it does not matter.
"I wanted a wife ,not a political advisor" the macho husband (George Nader)moans .But this wife is a feminist before the time and she 's as good at political intrigues as she is as the so called ill king's doctor:blood-letting weakens the monarch ,all he needs is good food and fresh air.In internal affairs ,she shows more flair than her hubby.
Maureen O'Hara 's flaming red hair is shown to good advantage in her naked ride ,and she displays plenty of go , not really supported by the rest of the cast .She had always been a female musketeer in a curious adaptation of Alexandre Dumas "at sword's point" ;feminist she said.
