Avalon, Calverley

Babylon 5: A Late Delivery from Avalon Original TV Soundtrack.

Bugs Bunny in King Arthur's Court -- a hare-raising animated (video) version of Twain's tale, starring Bugs, Daffy, and the rest of the Looney gang. "The pun is mightier than the sword," indeed! <g>

The Camelot Caper, Elizabeth Peters (audio cassette)

Camelot, Original Broadway Cast soundtrack, 1998 release, digitally remastered -- and absolutely glorious! The liner notes are very tongue-in-cheeky, too.

Camelot, 1982 London Cast soundtrack

Camelot -- 48-minute animated VHS video, with free audio sampler.

Camelot (VHS video) movie starring Richard Harris, Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero -- this is what first enchanted me to learn about the Legends, over three decades ago! Also available in DVD and 30th-Anniversary Widescreen formats.

Castle of the Holy Grail -- VHS tape, January 1998

Celts, an excellent VHS videotape series

Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court -- VHS release of the 1995 made-for-TV politically-correct rendition, starring Keshia Knight Pulliam as the "Yankee."

DragonHeart, starring Sean Connery (VHS, 1996). Also available in VHS Widescreen, DVD Collector's Edition, and DVD DTS formats.

Ever After: A Cinderella Story VHS tape -- not Arthurian, but a well-written, well-executed and all-around gorgeous (and fairy-less ;-) update of this classic fairy tale! Also available in VHS Spanish and DVD formats.

Excalibur VHS tape (Nicol Williamson, etc.) -- gorgeous Malory rendition, with probably the best cinematography and use of music (mostly themes from Wagner's Arthurian operas, complemented by Orff and original scoring) to date; a must-have for any Arthurophile!

Excalibur soundtrack excerpts on Silver Screen Classics vol. 3. Note: Over the past several months, I have noticed this is one of the most popular click-throughs of my entire bookstore, and I appreciate that! Recently, I found a web site sponsored by Dan A. Townsend, a.k.a. "Dandalf the Dragon," that offers a reproduction of the complete soundtrack. Enjoy!

Fair Queen Guinevere, Medwyn Goodall

First Knight VHS tape (Sean Connery, Richard Gere, Julia Ormond, Ben Cross) -- a creative interpretation of the little-known "Abduction of Guinevere" tale. Also available in wide screen, DVD and Spanish language formats.

King Arthur and His Knights, Jim Weiss, audio cassette

King Arthur & the Knights of Justice: King Arthur's Camelot, Bohbot Entertainment, originally released in limited US TV markets the mid-90s -- the story of an American pro football quarterback, Arthur King, and his teammates, the New England Knights, who get transported back to the "real" Camelot, because the "real" King Arthur and knights had been imprisoned under enchantment. Some might think this is a hokey treatment, but I will admit that of the few episodes I managed to catch, I enjoyed them! Also available in Clamshell case.

Monty Python & the Holy Grail Original Soundtrack

Monty Python & the Holy Grail VHS tape -- classic Arthurian spoof! Buy this, or I will have to say, "NI!" <grin> Also available in VHS Widescreen format and on DVD.

Mr. Magoo: King Arthur/Count of Monte Cristo -- animated video for the die-hard Arthurian collector

Mulan, Disney's excellent video adaptation, inspired by Fa Mulan: The Story of a Woman Warrior by Robert D. San Souci, author of Young Guinevere, et. al. While not Arthurian, the legend of Mulan is contemporary with the historical Arthurian era of the late 5th-early 6th century AD. Okay, so I have a soft spot for sympathetic female warriors! :)

Myths & Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, Rick Wakeman. I concur with the reviews: this is a must-have for any Arthurophile, whether a fan of classic rock or not!

Quest for Camelot Original Soundtrack -- Celine Dion's The Prayer cut was nominated for Best Song! (and the performance of it was breathtaking, on Oscars Night)

Quest for Camelot 1998 (VHS), starring the voices of Pierce Brosnan, et al -- very creative animated adaptation; Warner Brothers' first shot at a full-length animated film. Also available in clamshell (VHS), Spahish-dubbed (VHS), and DVD formats.

Quest for Camelot Sings Along VHS -- juvenile

Quest for the Holy Grail, Richard Rohr -- audio (cassette) book in 8 volumes

Robin Hood/King Arthur (VHS video) -- both classic legends on the same tape
