The song "If Ever I Would Leave You" won a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song Written for a Motion Picture, even though it was not written especially for the film but for the original stage production of "Camelot", and all the other nominees were songs especially written for films. In addition Frederick Loewe won a Golden Globe for "Best Original Score", a score that he had actually written for the Broadway stage, not for films. This is the only instance in the history of the Golden Globe Awards that this has happened. See more »
About a half-hour in, a close-up of Guenevere shows her lying on a couch on her stomach, while Arthur is talking. Cut to a long shot of Arthur, still talking, while Guenevere, in the background, is suddenly sitting up, discreetly holding a blanket over her torso. See more »
The rules of battle are not for Lancelot Du Lac, Your Majesty! Let us attack now while they sleep!
We will attack when I give the command - at dawn.

Oh, Merlyn, Merlyn, why is Ginny in that castle, behind walls I cannot enter? How did I blunder into this agonizing absurdity? Where did I stumble? How did I go wrong? Should I not have loved her?
Then I should not have been born! Oh, Merlyn, I haven't got much ...

a fine atmospherc sreen adaptation of lerner and loewe's classic. Richard Harris is quite simply magnificent as arthur,the best actor to play the role on stage or screen. redgrave is compelling,although julie andrews singing is sorely missed. the film adds more of a tragic feel,not like the original broadway version which had more humor. lerner himself rewrote his stage production after the film screenplay. franco nero is mis cast as lance ,even his dialoge was dubbed!! but david hemmings comes across quite well as mordred, too bad his song (along with 5 others) was cut. yes, at times it gets a bit long but its well worth it for the final inspiring scene when arthur passes on the camelot story to young tom of warwick. Harris is at the heart of this film and he keeps you glued to the screen.
