Trivia

For this revival, Alan Jay Lerner used his screenplay for the 1967 film rather than his original 1960 stage play. The screenplay includes two scenes not included in the original stage play - the flashback structure seen at the beginning, and the sequence in which Arthur encounters Merlin while in the forest, followed by Mordred persuading King Arthur to stay in the forest.

King Arthur: Why is Guinevere in that castle, behind walls I cannot enter? Why am I on the far side on the channel on this dark and dismal plain waiting an angry dawn to do battle against the man I love, for the woman I love?

A wonderful film
22 November 2004 | by (Cleveland, OH) – See all my reviews

I saw this version back when it first appeared on HBO and have never forgotten it. I hope they release it on DVD some day as I much prefer it to the earlier film version, which was much too dark and weighty. The added scenes enhance the continuity of the play, and the convoluted relationships of the story are much easier to grasp.

Ms. Bussert portrays a delightful Queen Guenevere. Her interpretation makes the role genuine and sympathetic as she matures from a naive romantic to a woman who is torn apart by her loyalty to Arthur and her passion for Lancelot.

My only regret is that I had not taped this 20 years ago.
