Alfred the Great (1969 Film)
Alfred the Great is a 1969 epic film Directed by Clive Donner, which portrays Alfred the Great's struggle to defend the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Wessex from a Danish Viking invasion in the 9th Century.
It stars David Hemmings as Alfred the Great, Michael York as Guthrum, Prunella Ransome as Aelhswith
Colin Blakely as Asser, Ian McKellen as Roger, Peter Vaughan as Burrud, Alan Dobie as Ethelred of Wessex, Julian Glover as Athelstan, Vivien Merchant as Freda, Julian Chagrin as Ivar the Boneless, Jim Norton as Thanet, Christopher Timothy as Cedric.
Moments before taking his priestly vows, Prince Alfred of Wessex is summoned to a new calling: leading his Saxon people to drive out invading Danes in an England that in the 870s was a loose collection of kingdoms. After he ascends the throne and wages his own personal battle between following his peace-craving intellect or his all-too-human passion, he will suffer defeat in the face of pagan savagery and the surrender of his wife as a hostage, before celebrating victory as the reluctant yet brilliant warrior hallowed across time as the unifying ruler Alfred the Great.
The film was shot in County Galway, Ireland, including locations such as Castlehackett in Tuam, Kilchreest, Ross Lake, and Knockma.
Produced by Bernard Smith
Written by James R. Webb and Ken Taylor
Music by Raymond Leppard
Cinematography by Alex Thomson
This film is filled with many historical errors and other shortcomings, mainly the script. David Hemmings is not bad, but the script doesn't help him. However, I've never been his fan and I wish Peter O'Toole was picked for the role of Alfred instead (he was being championed as the lead, back in 1964).
The movie performed very poorly in the box office, which is a pity because I think Alfred the Great and Anglo-Saxons deserves a great movie. However, this is a very rare movie to find, and I thought it would be nice to upload it for anyone who hasn't had the chance to see it. Enjoy.
