Sword/blade staircase

I saw this on TV in the 1960’s. A queen (Asian/Nomadic) asks a soldier of hers if he is ready to die for her. He says yes and mounts a huge staircase of stone with a blade embedded into the handrail. He slide down and presumably gets cut in half.

  1. Hey found it. Not exactly as I remember, but that’s it for sure. Movie: The Long Ships. 1963 The blade is called the Mare of Steel.

Got something to say?
