Review from TV
Guide -- 10 March 1962
An old classic is refurbished to provide a television adventure in three parts.
When a prince changes places with a pauper and is mauled by the paupers drunken father and a gang of roughnecks, and when the pauper, pretending hes the prince, gets mixed up in court intriguesits bound to take quite a while to unravel the mixed identities. Walt Disney decided it would take three hours of his "Wonderful World of Color," so his version of Mark Twains "The Prince and the Pauper" will be telecast in three parts, starting this Sunday, March 11. Guy Williams, who knows how to use a sword (he played TVs Zorro), will be skewering blackguards again, as soldier of fortune Miles Hendon.
