Eleonora, lovely daughter of the Governor of Famagusta, is the "swashbuckling Captain" of this adventure. Donned in man's robes, she fights the Turks (with the help of the "Lion of Damascus", a converted Christian) and frees her fianc‚, Marcello, who had been taken prisoner (thus saving him from the advances of the cruel and beautiful Haradya). Rich scenes, believable stunts: a classic historical drama. 85 min. IT
