Storyline

Sir Galahad is refused admission to King Arthur's Round Table until he regains the missing magic sword "Excalibur," which makes its possessor invincible. Ulric, the Saxon King, invades England. Galahad, aided by Sir Bors, attempts to retrieve "Excalibur" from Bartog, Ulric's chief aide, who has gotten it from a mysterious Knight.Merlin the Magician harasses Galahad at every turn, while Morgan le Fey, Arthur's sister and also a magician, helps Galahad fight both Merlin's magic and the Saxons. The Black Knight, a traitor within Camelot, is conspiring with the Saxons and a band of outlaws to overthrow King Arthur. When Queen Guinevere is seized by the traitors, Merlin relents and sends Galahad to the Lady of the Lake, who gives him "Excalibur." Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Much is familiar in this, one of the last of the classic Saturday Matinee Serials.
19 July 2001 | by (Cincinnati, OH) – See all my reviews

George Reeves is familiar not only as TV's Superman, but was one of the redheaded Tarleton twins at the beginning of "Gone with the Wind". Nelson Leigh (King Arthur) was in dozens of costume and historical movies, including his role as Jor-El (Superman's father) in the Superman serial. Galahad's sidekick Bors, was played by Charles King who was in over 300 movies starting with "Birth of a Nation"(1915). ---- At the other extreme, the Lady of the Lake (Lois Willows Hall), is a 40 year activist for the Bah' Faith in Southern California, and appeared in "Star Trek the Next Generation." ---- Watching this excellent old serial causes a feeling of deja vu. However, if you imagine that the swords are six-guns and the helmets are cowboy hats, and you notice the San Fernando Valley scenery that has been the backdrop for ten's of thousands of scenes in cowboy movies and early TV shows, you know why you have that feeling.

Great Fun. (Seeing this on TV or finding a copy might be tough. Try e-bay)
