T. H. Whites »Der König auf Camelot« ist die umfassendste und eigenständigste Nachschöpfung der unsterblichen Artuslegende. Sie nannten ihn »die Warze«, und wie eine lästige Warze wurde der kleine Art von seinem Vetter Kay auch behandelt. Kay, der Sohn des Hauses, wurde in allen ritterlichen Fertigkeiten unterrichtet. Art hingegen hatte nur den uralten Zauberer Merlin zum Lehrer. Doch nicht Kay gelang es, das sagenumwobene Schwert aus dem Stein zu ziehen, sondern Art, dem künftigen König der Tafelrunde. Als viel später König Arthurs Frau Guinevra eine Liebschaft mit dem tapferen Ritter Lancelot eingeht und der intrigante Sir Mordred nach Arthurs Thron trachtet, nimmt das Schicksal seinen Lauf.

The legends of King Arthur have not only endured for centuries, but also flourished in constant retellings and new stories built around the central themes of the legends. Clearly, soon after movie-making was underway, Arthur was destined to hit the screen. This revised edition of Cinema Arthuriana presents 20 essays on the topic of the recurring presence of the legend of King Arthur in film and television from 1904 to 2001. Four of the essays included are taken directly from the previous edition, ten are revised from the original, and six are newly written. The essays cover such films as Excalibur (1981), Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975), television productions up to the televised version of The Mists of Avalon (2001), and French and German films about the Quest for the Holy Grail and the other adventures of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.

The Disney Middle Ages

For many, the middle ages depicted in Walt Disney movies have come to figure as the middle ages, forming the earliest visions of the medieval past for much of the contemporary Western (and increasingly Eastern) imagination. The essayists of The Disney Middle Ages explore Disney's mediation and re-creation of a fairy-tale and fantasy past, not to lament its exploitation of the middle ages for corporate ends, but to examine how and why these medieval visions prove so readily adaptable to themed entertainments many centuries after their creation. What results is a scrupulous and comprehensive examination of the intersection between the products of the Disney Corporation and popular culture's fascination with the middle ages.

This is an exploration of the potent blend of Arthurian legend, cartoon animation, and cultural and artistic trends from 1933 to the present. In more than 170 theatrical and televised short cartoons, televised series and specials, and feature-length films from The Sword in the Stone to Shrek the Third—all covered in this book—animators have repeatedly brought the Round Table to life. Although these productions differ greatly in tone and intent—spanning spectra from comic to sober, fantastic to realistic, and entertaining to edifying—they share in the proof of Camelot’s continuing relevance in the modern world.

The Use of Arthurian Legend in Hollywood Film

This is the first book to examine the various uses of the Arthurian legend in Hollywood film, covering films from the 1920s to the present. The authors use five representational categories: intertextual collage (or cult film); melodrama, which focuses on the love triangle; conservative propaganda, pervasive during the Cold War; the Hollywood epic; and the postmodern quest, which commonly employs the grail portion of the legend. Arguing that filmmakers rely on the audience's rudimentary familiarity with the legend, the authors show that only certain features of the legend are activated at any particular time. This fascinating study shows us how the legend has been adapted and how through the popular medium of Hollywood films, the Arthurian legend has survived and flourished.
