Merlin and the Sword

Show Summary

Merlin and the Sword, also known as Arthur the King, is another retelling of the Arthurian legend. In this 1985 version, a tourist (Dyan Cannon) stumbles over the cave of Merlin (Edward Woodward), falls into a time warp and sets off the story. King Arthur (Malcolm McDowell) and his wife Guinevere (Rosalyn Landor) are abducted by his sister Morgan Le Fay (Candice Bergen). Lancelot ( Rupert Everett) is tasked to rescue them but he falls in love with Guinevere instead. The film received bad reviews but it did try to stay true to the themes of the classic tale such as betrayal, forbidden love, greed, and sorcery.
