Goofs

The monarch's standard includes a quadrant with the Fleur De Lys: this relates to the monarchy's French possessions. However, this connection did not arise until 1066 when William of Normandy defeated Harold at the Battle of Hastings to become William 1, so the standard could not have been that of monarchs of Saxon times.

Quotes

Robert: We're going to Merlin. He made your father king; perhaps he can make you queen.
Katherine: Now I know you're lying. Nobody knows where Merlin is.
Robert: Well, that will make things more difficult, won't it?

Ridiculous, but fun
14 August 2012 | by falconer99See all my reviews

I agree with most of the positive reviews above. But nobody mentioned the superb cinematography. It's so crisp, so clear, so focused … Which is a pity as the blurred footage inserted from other films therefore sticks out like a sore thumb. The film reminds me of "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid," in so far as the actors are obviously garbed in costumes that will match those we see later in this inserted footage. And half the fun is trying to identify from where the inserts come: Alan Ladd fighting at Castell Coch in Cardiff is the most obvious. But if you're a student of architecture, you'd better avoid this, as there are so many styles all mixed up, but all post-1066. And all this and Laurie Johnson too!
