Not a medieval epic, The Iron Maiden is a contemporary comedy. Nor is the title object a torture device; instead, it's new sort of steam roller. The hero (Michael Craig) is an aircraft designer who neglects his work because of his fondness for machine engines. The film's climax is a steamroller race across the British countryside, which is all right as steamroller races go. The American distributors of Iron Maiden sent this one out under the alluring and wholly misleading cognomen The Swinging Maiden.
