The Vikings (1958)

Starring: Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis, Ernest Borgnine

Directed By: Richard Fleischer

The Plot: Einar and Eric are two Viking half-brothers. The former is a great warrior whilst the other is an ex-slave, but neither knows the true identity of the other. When the throne of Northumbria in Britain becomes free for the taking, the two brothers compete against one another for the prize, but they have very different motives.

Comments: This was pretty fun. Ernest Borgnine with a beard? Come on! Some memorable scenes, such as Ernest Borgnine gleefully jumping into the pit of wild dogs. Great locations, cast, effects, story.
