The Arthurian legends are a crucial part of Western culture and literature. With their enduring themes, archetypal characters, and complex plots, it is not surprising that the stories of Camelot should find their way into films and television programs.From the moody ("Excalibur") to the looney ("Knighty Knight Bugs"), over 250 entries describe the various media interpretations of the legendary king and his trusty knights. Entries are arranged alphabetically, with complete credits, synopses, and analyses of the ways in which the pieces interpret the legend. Included are works like "The Sword in the Stone" that are based solely on Arthur and his literary origins, as well as those that feature other Camelot characters like Galahad, Percival, and the operatic favorites Tristan and Isolde. Also included are fanciful interpretations in animated films, parodies like Monty Python's, films like "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" that feature Arthurian themes, and television programs with Arthurian episodes such as "Babylon 5" and "MacGyver". Operatic and dramatic works, like "Camelot", that have been recorded for film and television are also covered. Appendices, a bibliography and an index, are included.
