This was a movie--not a very good one, alas!--in either the 1950s or 1960s. I think Richard Widmark and Sidney Poitier were in it. I hope the book is better--or, at least, more historically accurate.

All I can remember about it was the fabled golden bell: how they found it and were disappointed that it was a lame tiny little bell-ette ... until Richard Widmark flung it at the wall and found it was merely the clapper inside the real bell. And the Mare of Steel, which reminds me of the Tom Lehrer line about sliding down the razor-blade of life.
