Trama e commenti: - «Riccardo Cuor di Leone torna dalla terza crociata e viene fatto prigioniero da Leopoldo d'Austria. Giovanni, il fratello di Riccardo, che ha usurpato il suo trono, rifiuta di pagare il riscatto. Ivanhoe si fa in quattro per salvarlo. Duelli, tornei e un bel attacco al castello.

It's Taylor's job to raise an enormous sum to free Richard (Wooland). Taylor is a Saxon knight, son of lord Currie, who more or less disowned his son when he went to fight for Richard, a Norman king. Taylor encounters three Norman knights, Sanders, Douglas and de Wolff, who are in league with Prince John (Rolfe), who intends to usurp his missing brother, Richard. Taylor tells the knights that Currie's castle is nearby should they wish to seek shelter for the night, and he escorts them to his father's estate. Watching this encounter is Warrender (Robin Hood), and his men who were about to kill the hated Norman knights. But, seeing Taylor with the Normans, Warrender...».
