I'm trying to remember this science fiction/fantasy movie I saw on TV in the late 50's - 60's. It was set in medieval times and involved a bunch of warrior buddies with a scene at a windmill where a girl turns into a monster and kills by biting on the neck. The final scene is where all the warriors come back to life. Anyone remember it?

Ok, here's some more infor. I'm trying to remember a movie I saw on TV in the mid 50's to 1970. It seems like it was set in King Arthur times. The story line's about this guy who goes on a quest for something with fellow
warriors. A witch or female is trying to stop the quest. His
fellow men get killed off one by one. One scene I remember is the
leader fighting a giant, and he goes around the giant faster and
faster on a horse, until the giant gets dizzy and falls over dead.
The end scene is when all his fellow soldiers come back to life by a
spell or something.
