King Arthur as a boy
... considered a classic by many and a disaster by others. I'm in that other camp.
Often so misguided that it threatens to become a spoof worthy of Monty Python or Mel Brooks -- when Arthur hisses, "I demand a man's vengeance!" he sounds exactly like Cloris Leachman bleating, "Death to King Louis!" in History of the World: Part I.
Sometimes, the controlling principles of a Blu-ray production match those of its subject. Such is Warner's rather touching devotion, via top-drawer supplements and packaging, to a legendary film that never was...quite the Camelot that was in their hearts.
...a grand Lerner and Loewe musical presented in a grand fashion. (Blu-ray Book edition)
...a sentimental, idealistic piece of romance and adventure, fluff to be sure, but fluff I continue to enjoy.
A handsome to look at but dull and flat musical despite the high caliber talent.
so corny you've got to love it
