Description
The oft-told tales of Arthurian legend have always been fertile ground for art. With countless books, films and songs on the subject, there have been many interpretations of Merlin, the Knights of the Round Table, the glories of the kingdom of Camelot and the doomed love triangle of King Arthur, Lady Guenevere and Sir Lancelot du Lac. The musical Camelot, however, remains the most iconic. Consider the historical context of the piece. Originated for the stage in 1960, Camelot coincided with the presidency of a young John F. Kennedy. Kennedy was a big fan of Camelot; he identifi ed with King Arthur and, according to the First Lady, she and the President would often listen to the soundtrack before going to bed at night. Tragically, and ironically, just as Arthur's rule lasted for "one brief, shining moment," so did Kennedy's, and the press forever linked the two legendary leaders many hundreds of years apart. Camelot is emblematic of JFK and, as such, it is emblematic of an era.

      I watch this movie at home when I feel kind of down and depressed. It lifts me up. I love Richard Harris and Vanessa
      Redgrave.

                I saw this when it came out (2X) and always thought of it as magical. Then 15 years or so ago a girlfriend visited me from out of state. She and I watched it and both loved it even more. I bought one for myself and one for her for this Christmas.
                I ADORE the fact that Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero fell in love while making this movie. They had a son 9 months later and promised they would marry one another before their lives were over. They married 2 years ago with their son standing up for both of them. True love conquers.

                  A wonderful way to spend an evening curled up on the couch, eating popcorn. Both of my daughters did not know there was a movie about Camelot. They have always enjoyed musicals and this one was loved by them as well.

                      I've seen the stage production - the movie is just short of it. Great evening movie with the one you love.

                          I absolutely love this movie. It has been years since I have seen it, but it is as wonderful this time around as the first.
                          Richard Harris IS King Arthur, and I don't believe anyone could ever replace him. I even liked Vanessa Redgrave as Guenivere more this time around.
                          I would highly recommend this for any family movie gathering. It has something for everyone, young and old.
