Overview
Journey to a land of excitement, adventure and incredible riches in this "sweeping" (The Hollywood Reporter) epic starring Tyrone Power and Orson Welles. Filmed in glorious Technicolor across two continents, 'The Black Rose' is a sumptuous feast for the eyes and a "thrilling" (Variety) cinematic achievement.

Fascinated by the mysteries of the East and shunned by the establishment of thirteenth-century England, Walter of Gurnie (Power) embarks on a journey to the exotic land of Cathay. Soon he joins the caravan of Bayan (Welles), a notorious warrior transporting gifts to Kubla Khan in Mongolia. Walter slowly earns Bayan's respect, but then risks everything - including his life - when a beautiful woman, the Black Rose, enlists him in a perilous mission: to save her from becoming Kubla Khan's concubine and return her to her native England.
