The viking adventurers who challenged the seas… and conquered the world!

Viking brothers Rolfe (Richard Widmark) and Orm (Russ Tamblyn, West Side Story) steal the Norse king’s funeral ship as well as his beautiful daughter, Gerda (Beba Loncar), and head off in search of the fabled “Mother of Voices,” a huge solid-gold bell “as tall as three tall men.” The brothers battle a maelstrom, a mutinous crew and vengeful Moorish troops led by Prince El Mansuh (Sidney Poitier). Highlighted by rousing battle scenes, daring escapes and humorous interludes.

This action-packed Viking adventure saga was directed by legendary cinematographer Jack Cardiff and starring Richard Widmark and Sidney Poitier.
