Critic Reviews for Knights of the Round Table
No excerpt available.
MGM's first CinemaScope picture has not aged well (too verbose and the acting is stiff), but production values are good and Robert Taylor and Ava Gardner are handsome.
Lavish MGM King Arthur tale featuring Robert Taylor and jousting galore.
Audience Reviews for Knights of the Round Table
Your ambitions soar high on such young wings. King Arthur and Lancelot become best friends during Arthur's rise to power. They form the knights of the roundtable and are unmatched. As they begin to seem unbreakable, scandals within the walls of the castle opens a crack enemies will try to exploit. "Who is it?" "Death...awaiting on the stairs." Richard Thorpe, director of Jailhouse Rock, Ivanhoe, Vengeance Valley, The Golden Head, The Prodigal, Killers of Kilimanjaro, Athena, and Carbine Williams, delivers Knights of the Round Table. The storyline for this picture was fun and has some great action scenes. I loved the script as well as the acting. The cast includes Robert Taylor, Ava Gardner, Mel Ferrer, and Stanley Baker. "I thank you for the help I did not need." I came across this on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and had to DVR it. I generally enjoy movies in this genre and this was fairly well done. This may not be an all time classic, or worth adding to your DVD collection, but it is worth a viewing. "Without you I endure life. With you I rejoice in it." Grade: B-
Robert Taylor acts circles around stiff-as-hell Mel Ferrer. Nice fights though, and Gardner of course looks beautiful.
Lavishly appointed, spinning a lucid account of the Arthurian legend with Robert Taylor leading a solid cast as trusted knight Sir Lancelot, the good king played by Mel Ferrer, with Queen Guenevere essayed by Ava Gardner.
