A soldier on his way to meet his regiment stops along the way to visit a friend. (Acts 1 and 2) After leaving he is pursued by the enemy and he finds refuge behind an unlocked door (Act 3) Just listen to Act 3. That’s where the action is.


A sixteenth century thriller

I love it when the actors attempt to use accents. I just wish ALL the actors used an accent. This took place in France, not the USA. Oh, well... It was a good version and a fun episode. I am grateful for the modest attempts at sounding "French."


An interesting and likeable episode. I did buy all of Louis Stevenson's writings from Amazon through their reader, now I just have to put aside time to read them all. Hopefully I enjoy them as much or more than I have the adaptations here.


During the Hundred Years’ War, a cavalier escapes drunken soldiers to refugee in a Mansion. It is here he has to decide to marry or not the owner’s daughter. Who’s Father is a vicious beast!
