Dangerous Exile (1957) is a British swashbuckler and rewrite of French history; a story about what happens to Louis XVII (Richard O'Sullivan) after French revolutionaries behead his father, King Louis XVI. In the film, Duke Phillipe De Beauvais (Louis Jourdan) manages to smuggle the little prince away to Wales, leaving his own son back in Paris as a decoy. After arriving in Wales via hot air balloon, a young woman (Belinda Lee) and her wealthy aunt (Martita Hunt) protect and care for young Louis. When the boy is older and it is time for him to return to France, he refuses. But a spy for the French revolutionaries (Finlay Currie) has other plans. Keith Michell plays a French Republican who crosses swords with the Duke de Beauvais in an inevitable and exciting swashbuckling scene. Dangerous Exile is an opulent film, at turns brooding and thrilling, and a must see for any history buff.
