Time Out says

Awful international Technirama hodge-podge, adapted from a novel by Frank G Bengtsson, in which the Vikings wrestle with the Moors to lay hands on the legendary Golden Bell of St James (rather an anti-climax when it finally appears). Chief North African Poitier seems to be taking matters seriously, while Scandinavian rival Widmark clearly does not. Homolka overplays the role of Krok, a Viking shipbuilder, quite enjoyably.
