Goofs

The monarch's standard includes a quadrant with the Fleur Des Lys. The relates to the monarchy's French possessions. However this connection did not arise till 1066 when William of Normandy defeated Harold at the Battle of Hastings to become William 1. So the standard could not have been that of monarchs of the Saxon times. See more »

Defend Camelot Against the Saxons!
29 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The King Arthur legend gets a fanciful spin in this colourful but weak British offering. Directed by Nathan Juran and starring Janette Scott and Ronald Lewis, it's all about medieval malarkey as Lewis' Robin Hood type character wanders the lands with Scott's disguised princess in search of Merlin (John Laurie). They need the great wizard to stop the dastardly Edmund of Cornwall (Ronald Howard) from seizing the throne of Arthur with help from the Saxons.

It's played for light hearted thrills, the cast having fun prancing about in their borrowed costumes (much of the production uses props, costumes and footage from some earlier swords and shields movies), and Juran never lets the story sag and knows when to perk things up with an action scene or some character merriment. Harmless fluff really. Played as the "B" picture to Jason and the Argonauts and in that context it's a fun enough warmer upper! 5/10
