Excalibur (1981) Poster


Keith Buckley: Uryens



  • Arthur : Swear faith to me, and you shall have mercy! I need battle lords such as you!

    Uryenes : [scornfully]  A noble knight swear faith to a squire?

    Mador : NEVER... NEVER!

    Arthur : You are right.

    Arthur : You're right... I'm not yet a knight.

    [Hands Excalibur to Uryenes and kneels] 

    Arthur : You, Uryenes, will make me a knight. Then as knight to knight... I can offer you mercy.

    Merlin : [Alarmed]  What's this? What's this?

    Mador : Keep it, Uryenes!

    Uryenes : [hesitates and then touches Excalibur to Arthur's shoulder]  In the name of God, St Michael and St George, I give you the right to bear arms and the power to mete justice!

    Arthur : That duty I will solemnly obey, as knight and king.

    Merlin : I never saw this.

    Uryenes : Rise... King Arthur.

    [Uryenes kneels before Arthur] 

    Uryenes : I am your humble knight, and I swear allegiance to the courage in your veins. So strong it is, its source must be Uther Pendragon's. I doubt you no more!

    [kisses Arthur's hand - other knights also kneel] 

  • [the nobles are arguing over Arthur's drawing of the sword] 

    Uryenes : Lord Leondegrance! Join us against the boy!

    Leondegrance : I saw what I saw! The boy drew the sword. If a boy has been chosen, a boy shall be King!

    Uryenes : NO, I challenge that!

    Sir Ector : The sword has been drawn!

    Uryenes : [to Leondegrance]  Are you with us, or against us?

    Leondegrance : Against you!
