Episode 21: Knight Errant
After their father dies, two sisters inherit his tiny impoverished kingdom. Their guardian is eager to set up a rich marriage for the older girl, but she is not willing.
Raiding the tales of Arthurian lore, this British show follows the stirring adventures of dashing Sir Lancelot (William Russell) and the Knights of the Round Table. Queen Guinevere (Jane Hylton), King Arthur (Ronald Leigh-Hunt), and Merlin (Cyril Smith) are among the supporting cast in this 1950s series that later aired for a successful run on American television (a rarity at the time).
Although the series is supposed to be black and white, a number of episodes are mysteriously in gorgeous color.
In all of Arthurian legend, the most famous of the Knights of the Round Table is undoubtedly Sir Lancelot. This series, painstakingly researched by the History and Literature Departments of Oxford University, re-creates some of the notable exploits of the famous knight, as well as the deeds of the other members of King Arthur’s court.
