Rating:
G

Camelot, a musical drama, was directed by Joshua Logan and released in theaters in 1967. The film is entirely based on the stage production composed by Lerner and Loewe. The story, which is presented as a long flashback in the mind of an aging King Arthur (Richard Harris), tells a timeless legend of both love and tragedy. King Arthur and Guinevere (Vanessa Redgrave) are set to wed as the result of an arranged marriage. King Arthur works to woo her, introducing her not only to his own love but also the glory of Camelot, his enchanted kingdom. Unfortunately, things begin to crumble for the newlyweds. Guinevere fights to resist the undeniable force that draws her to Sir Lancelot (Franco Nero), the best of King Arthur's knights and his dearest friend. Enemies move against the kingdom seeking to destroy both the monarchy and the ideals it represents. King Arthur must fight to maintain his self-control, dignity and honor in the face of life's most cruel betrayals. The film was nominated for five, and won three, Academy Awards.
