Ronald Lacey, who played the character Oswald, also played the same character, also called Oswald, in "Sword of the Valiant" which was made in 1984, and starred Myles O'Keefe as Gawain and Sean Connery as the Green Knight, and Cyrielle Claire as Lynette ("The Lady of Lyonesse"). Basically, it was the same movie, same actor, same role. See more »
I was about six when I saw this so forgive the vagueness. It's kind of Monty Python's Holy Grail in look with a Michael "couldn't-direct-traffic-on-the-Orkney-Islands" Winner directorial style. It was so deeply bizarre that it has stuck in the memory ever since. Thinking I perhaps didn't understand it because I was a kid I asked a couple of film boffins I know, they said, "no, mate, it was a genuinely odd film." (I seem to recollect lots of misty forests, dream-like fights and a man who lived in a vat of oil in order that his genitals erode away). Anyway, I think more youngsters should be made to watch this film so that they can grow up confused and slightly warped.
