The Swordsman is a 1948 American swashbuckler film directed by Joseph H. Lewis and starring Larry Parks.[2]

Plot

In 18th-century in Scotland, the McArden and Glowan clans stand a violent and long hostility. Alexander, an attractive member of the McArdens clan, falls in love with the beautiful Barbara Glowan. Quickly, their relationship awakens anger of Barbara's cousin, Robert Glowan, who tries to destroy the enemy family forever. The boyfriend, anxious to marry his lover, intends that the two clans live in peace.

Cast

Production

The film was based on an original script by Wilfrid Pitit. It was originally called Annie Laurie, then in November 1946, the title was changed to The Forge Man by which time Larry Parks was set to star and Joseph H Lewis was to direct.[3] The same month, Hedda Hopper said the movie's title was Glencoe and that it was filming in secrecy.[4]

Filming finished by March 1947.[5]

Reception

The New York Times called it "a plain old fashioned horse opera" noting many of the situations and dialogue could have come straight from a Western.[6]
