*Spoiler/plot- A Connecticutt Yankee, 1955. A 19th century man time travels into the Medieval times of legendary King Arthur's court. Many cultural and technological problems develop and need to be solved.

*Special Stars- Boris Karloff.

*Theme- Science has to develop slowly.

*Trivia/location/goofs- TV show drama, Black & White. Several remakes through the years with different cast choices.

*Emotion- A well known humorous story that is often dome in theaters, feature film and on early TV. This version is charming to see Mr. Karloff out of his horror genre and into light historical comedy.

*Based on- The Classic Samuel 'Mark Twain' Clemens story.
