Never before have I seen a motion picture that was so beautifully made.
performance that Richard Harris made is spectacular. In all movies that I
have seen, never before have I seen such an upbeat and happy ending. The
romance between Guenevere and Lancelot, and King Arthur were perfectly
portrayed in this film. I have read before that alot of people rate
Lancelot's performance as being "wooden", but I really must disagree with
this - Lancelot could not have been portrayed any better. A timeless
hjohnson watch Legally Blondes movie
I watched this in my Arthurian Legend course at my University and I fell in love with it. We also watched Legends of the Fall, another fantastic movie, and Revenge with Kevin Costner and had to tie it together with Arthurian Legends. The whole concept of Arthurian Legend is fabulous and it is something I have had great interest in for many years. .

Don't let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one, brief shining moment that was known as Camelot
Camelot represents the last gasp of the true Hollywood "film musical". It
originated as the follow-up to Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's highly
successful My Fair Lady opening on Broadway in December of 1960 and ushering
in a new time in American Politics as well: the administration of President
John Fitzgerald Kennedy and his thousand days in the White House. The
musical made bankable stars out of Richard Burton as King Arthur (in his
pre-Liz days), Julie Andrews as Queen Guenevere (in her pre-Poppins and
Sound of Music days) and Robert Goulet as Lancelot du Lac in his
However, where the director of the film (Joshua Logan) goes totally and
utterly wrong is by casting not one of the Original Broadway Cast in the
film version. By this time, Burton had aged a bit so the jocular, smooth
boyish looking King Arthur would be no more. Julie Andrews was riding high
on her dual back to back successes, Mary Poppins and the Sound of Music so
it would come as no surprise to anyone that she'd want to go back and relive
something seven years in her past. Robert Goulet had no other success
following the one he had in the original Broadway Company of Camelot, unless
you count a saavy lounge act and marrying Carole Lawrence in the
The film is as lush as we're likely to get when looking back on those
halcyon days of the early 1960's. When Camelot opened on Broadway in 1960,
it was close to over three hours long, a rarity in those days, especially
for what was then called a "book musical". As a result it won three Academy
Awards in 1967: for Best Scoring (musical adaption), Best Art Direction/Set
Decoration and Best Art Direction/Costume Design.
It is worth watching for the sets and costumes alone. Whereas unlike the
film version of My Fair Lady, this one doesn't drag at all. It is a
requirement almost for this film to be as close to three hours as it
possibly can, in order to tell the entire story...and then some. We, the
audience cannot be left wanting and wishing for more because by the end of
it all we figure out the Camelot "who's who" and exactly how all the
characters, like Pellinore and Mordred all relate to one
Perhaps, the best moment of this film, as with the stage version that
preceded it, occurs at the very end when King Arthur is left alone on the
battlefield after the lovers have ran off and left him to attempt to pick up
the pieces of his shattered dreams. A young boy, Tom of Warwick, comes
along and wants to be made a Knight of the Round Table. Arthur sees the
courage and fervent determination in his eyes and knights him, bading him to
leave the battle before its begun by running behind the lines and going home
to his family. Arthur invokes probably one of the most famous finales in
all of musical theater when he tells him:
"Each evening from December to December, before you drift to sleep
upon your cot, think back on all the tales that you remember of
Ask every person if he's heard the story, and tell it strong and
if he has not, that once there was a fleeting wisp of glory called
Camelot...don't let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief,
shining moment...that was known as Camelot."
My rating: 2 and a half stars.
