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?

Marvelous
7 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am one on the fortunate ones, I watched this musical on stage in 1962 in New York, William Squire as Arthur, Patricia Breddin as Guenevere, Robert Goulet as Lancelot, Roddy McDowell as Mordred and Robert Coote as Pellinore, I own the original cast recording, this play is part of me. Needless to say, when I watched the movie from 1967, I was devastated, it was nothing like the stage play, it lost all the charm. When I found that this revival was available on DVD, I jumped at it and was not disappointed! Richard Harris was Arthur, a wonderful performance. And yes, it is a filmed stage production so the action seems strange when watching it as a movie until one puts ones self in the audience of the theatre and the odd angles and not looking at each other make sense. I truly enjoy Lerner & Loewe's music, the lyrics are so clever, word play and double entendres, such a joy. I was disappointed that one song was left out of the production, the one in which Guenevere enlists Dunadin, Sagamore and Lionel to "barbeque" Lancelot. I cannot recommend this more highly, it is a marvelous story, a joy to behold. Enjoy
