Editors Note
Note Swashbuckling star Tyrone Power matches wits with cinematic heavyweight Orson Welles in this adventure set in Renaissance-era Italy. Power (THE BLACK SWAN) stars as Andrea Orsini, also known as the Prince of Foxes. Employed by the evil Cesare Borgia (Welles, THE THIRD MAN), Orsini journeys to a region with orders to spy for Borgia who intends to take over the land. When Orsini meets some of Borgia's intended victims, he finds it hard not to befriend the charismatic couple, creating conflict in the normally loyal soldier. Welles and Power would later reunite in BLACK ROSE.

Reviews
ReviewSource At-A-Glance Film Reviews
Review Tyrone Power had just about overplayed his hand in exotic costume dramas like this one by 1949, but Prince of Foxes isn't half bad. It's filmed in black and white, which for some reason adds the atmosphere that the drab Captain From Castile and The Black Rose lacked. It also has Orson Welles as the villain, an asset if ever there was one. I still say Power generally delivers wooden performances unless under the very best of directors (like Billy Wilder in Witness For the Prosecution), but this minor medieval adventure romp is downright entertaining.
