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
