In addition to actual Medieval castles in Spain used in this film, a castle was built on the back lot of Warner Brothers Studios for closer shots and direct storyline action. Long known at the studio as the "Camelot Castle" after filming ended, it was used in other films. In 1972, the Camelot Castle was renovated into a Tibetan Lamasery for the musical remake of Lost Horizon (1973), and it was used extensively in the TV series Kung Fu (1972). In the 1980's, the back lot castle was torn down to make room for an office building. Fortunately, the Alcazar de Segovia and the Coca Castle remain in Spain where they are both popular tourist attractions. 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.
[the knight leaves, and Arthur begins to talk to himself]
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 ...

Beautiful music and strong performances from Richard Harris and Vanessa Redgrave, however they are not singers and it hurts the picture mightily, leaving you wondering how much better it could have been with Richard Burton, Robert Goulet and especially Julie Andrews. True Burton wasn't a singer either using the talk singing method that Rex Harrison employed on My Fair Lady so Harris' replacement isn't as glaring as Redgrave/Andrews or Nero/Goulet. Where the picture really runs into problems through is the lumbering pace set by director Logan. A fine director of drama but with no skill at setting the right tone for a musical although that didn't stop the studios from handing him several throughout the years ending with the disaster of Paint Your Wagon. Some of the costumes are truly amazing and justly famous but this can be a trial to sit through.
