Bardelys the Magnificent is a historical romantic drama set in France during the reign of King Louis XIII.  Bardelys the Magnificent centers around two men competing for the hand and heart of Roxalanne de Lavedan.  Bardelys takes the role of Lesperon, a man Bardelys found wounded and dying alongside the road.  Unbeknownst to Bardelys, Lesperon was considered a traitor to the king and is being hunted.  Can Bardelys escape from the king's men, achieve the love of Roxalanne, and deal with his rival Châtellerault?  They don't call him Magnificent for nothing!


Notes:     

Bardelys the Magnificent was the second movie that a young John Wayne appeared in as a guard.
Bardelys the Magnificent was considered to be a lost film for many years.  An almost complete version was found in France in 2006.
