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 good comment, not a bad one..Great!!!
13 July 2004 | by (Goshen, IN, USA) – See all my reviews

I am disappointed, when I like something, to immediately come upon a bad comment the first thing I read comments. I loved this version much better than the movie as the lady who did Guinevere really had a beautiful voice and was much lovelier than the screen version. Richard Harris was delightful and would have only been surpassed by Richard Burton, who originally did the play on Broadway. (Julie Andrews should have been in the movie) The man who did King Pellinore did a wonderful job and Merlin was also played well. I got a lot more enjoyment out of the play. Somehow it was like being in the theater. Since I never get to go to plays, this is a marvelous way to view them. I think that anyone who does not like musicals should never review them as it will always be with criticism. See it if you get a chance, although it is difficult to get a copy.
