British icon and screen legend Oliver Reed (Oliver, Gladiator, Women In Love) creates a mesmerising, career defining performance in this unforgettable, swashbuckling tale of action, adventure, romance and intrigue. Faithfully adapted for the screen by celebrated author George Macdonald Fraser, Mark Twain’s popular story tells the tale of Tom Canty, a cockney street urchin with an uncanny resemblance to Prince Edward, son of King Henry VIII. After a chance meeting with the young Prince of Wales, Tom and Edward decide to play a prank and swap roles. But when the two become separated one is thrown into the privileged world of royalty and the other into the harsh, grimy underworld of Tudor England. Lavishly directed by Richard Fleischer (Fantastic Voyage, Soylent Green and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea), The Prince And The Pauper features a stunning cast of Hollywood stars, including Charlton Heston, Raquel Welch, Ernest Borgnine, George C. Scott, Rex Harrison and David Hemmings.
