Synopsis: On her way to marry King Arthur, Guenevere is rescued from bandits by Lancelot--a roaming fighter who becomes smitten with her beauty.

Reaction: A bit problematic at times, but you have to enjoy Sean Connery's performance, as always.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Former [James Bond] director Terence Young was supposed to direct this film but died during early pre-production. It would have reunited him with his James Bond actor Sean Connery after 30 years. Their last movie together was Thunderball in 1965.
  • Mel Gibson was attached to this project at one stage.
  • In a making-of feature in which Richard Gere was preparing for the first rescue of Gweneviere (Julia Ormond), Gere stated that this would be the last film in which he performed an action oriented role. So far, it has.
