Episode 23: The Lady Lilith
The Lady Lilith has been running the castle of Goodhue since it was left to her by the late Sir William , when she was 14 years old. But now Sir Liones petitions for a ruling at the court of King Arthur, quoting the law that no property can be inherited by a woman – which sets King Arthur a difficult choice to make. He suggests that the best solution would be for Sir Liones to marry the Lady, but apparently that is not possible.
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.
