Golden Horde, The (1951, Ann Blyth, David Farrer)



This action-packed adventure, filled with sword-fighting battles, is also the story of an empowered woman. The year is 1220, and Shalimar (Ann Blyth) is the princess of an Asian city being threatened by one of the world’s greatest conquerors: Gengkis Khan (Marvin Miller). Although Sir Guy (David Farrar) and his group of English crusaders offer to help, Blyth decides to fight this good fight on her own. Rather than relying on weapons, she uses her cunning mind and figures out a scheme, involving Genghis Khan’s son, to save her city.

AKA The Golden Horde of Genghis Khan.
