References to England are incorrectly regarded as goofs. The first known use of "England" occurred in 897. If King Arthur had been a 'real' king, he would have lived around the 5th or 6th centuries, however, it is more as a Middle Ages knight that he is presented in literature -- and in this movie. Knights in suits of armor (as portrayed in this film) began to appear in the early 15th century. See more »
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?
