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

A truly abysmal film, saved only by the wonderfully arch 'Limping Man', beautifully played by Jerome Willis.
A truly abysmal film, saved only by the wonderfully arch villain - 'The Limping Man'- beautifully overplayed by Jerome Willis. As a keen Arthurian scholar and Dark-Age reenactor, I can say that this movie bears absolutely no relation to history - or even legend! Who was Edmund of Cornwall for goodness sake? He is unknown to this period of history.
However,it is the type of film that I would love to own,if only for Jerome Willis's character.
The film is so typical of its genre and is a 'must have' to complete anyone's kitsch collection of cheesy swashbucklers, in the same way that one has a copy of 'Agadoo' and 'The Birdie Song' in a record collection.
