King Arthur establishes the greatest reign England has ever seen, and along for the ride are his indispensable Knights of the Round Table, particularly Sir Lancelot. Then, Arthur finds himself a bride, the beautiful Guenivere. While she loves Arthur, she also loves Lancelot and though Lancelot repeatedly fights it, he loves her, too. Treachery is brewing as the evil Morgan le Fay and her knight Sir Modred work to trap them. So begins the decline and eventual fall of Arthur and Camelot. Written by
Swordfighting and battle-scenes galore! This was the first armored knight movie that I saw as a child. Loved it and never forgot it. Great cast, very colorful and lots of action. Robert Taylor at his swashbuckling best all dressed in bright red as Sir Lancelot. Stanley Baker as the treacherous and dark villain, Modred. And of course, Mel Ferrer as noble King Arthur, with Ava Gardner as the beautiful and vunerable Queen Guinevere. What more could a kid want?
