Trivia Miklós Rózsa lifted liberally from his own work for this film when he later composed the score for El Cid (1961). See more »
Goofs References to England are incorrectly regarded as goofs. The first known use of "England" occurred in 897. If King Arthur had been a 'real' king, he would have lived around the 5th or 6th centuries, however, it is more as a Middle Ages knight that he is presented in literature -- and in this movie. Knights in suits of armor (as portrayed in this film) began to appear in the early 15th century. See more »
