    Synopsis


    Knights of the Round Table
    MGM's first CinemaScope production was the lavishly appointed Knights of the Round Table. Without overlapping into any copyrighted material (specifically T.H. White's The Once and Future King), the film spins a lucid account of the King Arthur legend. The good king is played by Mel Ferrer, while Queen Guenevere is essayed by Ava Gardner. Arthur's efforts to create a perfect society in Camelot are compromised when Guenevere falls in love with trusted knight Sir Lancelot (Robert Taylor). The ambitious Mordred (Stanley Baker) uses his knowledge of the Queen's indiscretion to destroy both Camelot and King Arthur's round table. Most of the story material in Knights of the Round Table is lifted from Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      The DVD provided good picture and sound. Robert Taylor stars in this movie about Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table I loved Taylor in Ivanhoe but this movie just lacks the overall quality of Ivanhoe. If you like movies about King Arthur and Merlin you may like this movie but at times I found it to be boring.

      An old movie that still remains a classic.

      I have seen Excalabur plenty of times but I believe that Knights of the round table has it beat. It brings to life the actual story of King Author and Sir Lancolot. This movie tells the true story of the knights of the round table. If you have any interest in King Author this the movie for you.
