... considered a classic by many and a disaster by others. I'm in that other camp. Full Review

To take all three hours, one probably needs a fairly tireless addiction to knights, toy castles, rapt pauses and battlefield farewells. Full Review

A few pretty scenes, several enchanting songs and an awful lot that is tiresome in between. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Often so misguided that it threatens to become a spoof worthy of Monty Python or Mel Brooks -- when Arthur hisses, "I demand a man's vengeance!" he sounds exactly like Cloris Leachman bleating, "Death to King Louis!" in History of the World: Part I. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- The film that essentially killed off Old Hollywood by virtue of being such a bad box-office flop. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- ...a sentimental, idealistic piece of romance and adventure, fluff to be sure, but fluff I continue to enjoy. Full Review

Product Description:

The Lerner and Loewe musical about the legendary Court of King Arthur based on T.H. White's book The Once and Future King. The film is not as good as the show or the book, despite a big budget and big cast. Academy Award Nominations: 5. Academy Awards: 3, including Best (Adapted) Score, Best Costume Design.

Plot Synopsis:

Adaptation of the Lerner and Loewe stage musical about the rise and fall of King Arthur and the court of Camelot. Destined to rule England, the noble Arthur builds a magical and benevolent kingdom with the assistance of the Knights of the Round Table, only to be toppled by the machinations of the conniving Mordred and by the betrayal of his beloved wife Guenevere and her lover Lancelot.
