IVANHOE is the classic story written by Sir Walter Scott and freely adapted by Richard Hills. It starts with the return of Ivanhoe from where he has fought in the wars in the Holy Land with King Richard. He meets the Norman Knights Brian Boris-de-Guilbert and Maurice-de-Bracy, and fights duels with them. On the second day of the tournament he is wounded, and his Saxon friend, Isaac of York, rescues him and takes him on a journey to his home in York. Guilbert and Bracy catch up with them and take them prisoner to Torquilstone Castle.
King Richard returns from the Holy Land, and hearing about Ivanhoe, he comes to his rescuer. He then finds his brother Prince John, and has him arrested. Ivanhoe ends up marrying his sweetheart, Lady Rowena.
