|THE VAGABOND KING - 1959
Cut-throat and drunkard, pickpocket and braggart - François Villon is all of these. But he is also a poet and a Romantic, and he is adored by the rabble of Louis XI's Paris, which is ringed by the armies of the rebellious Burgundians.
Katherine de Vaucelles has received romantic poems from Villon, not knowing his identity. She has rejected the advances of Louis, and has gone to an inn to discover, if she can, more about her unknown admirer....
Book and Lyrics by W.H. Post and Brian Hooker from Justin Huntly McCarthy's romance 'If I Were King'.
