Welcome 2018, a brand new year! In Sweden, for a lot of people, the new year start with a very special tradition… The movie Ivanhoe from 1982 at 3pm. (And before that movie it was the Ivanhoe movie from 1952).
Tournaments, knights, combats, princes, princesses, the evil King John, the nice Richard Lionheart and Robin Hood. The two beautiful ladies, blonde Rowena (Lysette Anthony) and brunette Rebecca (Olivia Hussey) who will Ivanhoe (Anthony Andrews) pick? And then the bad guy, Brian de Bois-Guilbert played by Sam Neill.
You might see a lot of #Ivanhoe on Twitter today.
Happy New Year!
Take care, over and out!
