Based on the popular novel by Samuel Shellabarger, Prince Of Foxes details the chicanery and machiavellian politics of Renaissance Italy. Cesare Borgia (Orson Welles) is crafty, manipulative, and power-hungry, and everyone who is under his thumb knows it. One of these men under the Duke’s thumb is the genial Orsini (Tyrone Power). Ordered to play “good-will” ambassador to a local Duke, Orsini slowly begins to realize that his mission is to get information for the crafty Duke so that the Borgias can take over the pivotal region. Orsini begins to fall in love with the young bride (Wanda Hendrix) of the kindly Duke and begins to chafe under the despotic rule of Cesare Borgia. His “disloyalty” is uncovered and he is captured by the Borgia soldiers. His torture and punishment only serve to enflame his desire for revenge against the evil Borgia family. When he escapes the clutches of the Borgias, he returns to the province of the kindly Duke and leads a revolt against the bloodthirsty Borgia clan. Prince Of Foxes was filmed on location in Italy.
