The Black Rose is a 1950 adventure film directed by Henry Hathaway based on the novel of the same name by Thomas B. Costain. During the crusades of the 13th Century, Saxon nobleman Walter of Gurnie (Tyrone Power) incites a rebellion against his Norman rulers. When the rebellion fails, he decides to leave his homeland and seek the riches of the Far East with his friend and compatriot Tristam (Jack Hawkins). Along the way, Walter is captured by Bayan (Orson Welles), a fierce Mongol warlord. In captivity, he meets the beautiful Maryam (Cecile Aubry), a remarkable woman considered the titular black rose. Bayan brings the trio to the court of Kubla Khan, where Maryam is intended to become a royal concubine. The trio plots their escape from their captors' clutches, but even if their freedom is secured, Walter wonders whether or not he should return in shame to his estranged homeland of England.
