Of the many great books series I chose Le Morte D'Athur
10 November 2002 | by (Arlington Texas) – See all my reviews

Le Morte D'Athur is one of the best of a series of subjects on great books. In this case it is more of how the Arthurian legion originated and now permeates our society. The narrator is Donald Sutherland and executive editor Walter Cronkite. There are film shots from Star Wars and old manuscripts. They even refer to President Kennedy. Also included is Monty Python. Left out is any mention of Marion Zimmer Bradley (The Mists of Avalon.)
