Synopsis

Classic tale set in the 16th-century chronicles the misadventures of a pauper boy and a young prince who are identical in appearance. The pauper sneaks into the castle and comes face to face with the look-a-like prince. They agree to temporarily swap identities. It works so well that the true prince dressed in pauper's clothing finds that no one believes who he really is, while the pauper finds that he's about to be crowned King of England.

A reasonable enough Disney effort. Scully is pretty good in the dual role, but Guy Williams has an American accent (did they think no one would notice?) and is nowhere near as good as Errol Flynn was. The plot, however is highly unbelievable unless one treats it like a fairy tale.
