Quick Overview

Starring George Reeves, Charles King, William Fawcett, Pat Barton, Lois Hall, Don C. Harvey,

Nelson Leigh

Directed by Spencer Gordon Bennet



Print: black/white

Runtime: 252 min.

Genre: adventure

Picture Quality: B



The legendary Knights of the Round Table came to the screen in 1949 courtesy of

penny-pinching serial producer Sam Katzman. A pre-Superman George Reeves starred in

the title role, a knight who, in order to join King Arthur (Nelson Leigh) and his famous table,

must obtain the missing sword Excalibur whose powers can render a person invisible. Sir

Galahad is hindered in his quest by the occupying Saxons in general and by Merlin the

magician (William Fawcett) and a mysterious Black Knight (Leonard Penn) in particular. All

the legendary characters appear in this serial, including Morgan Le Fay (Pat Barton); Sir

Lancelot (Hugh Prosser); Queen Guinevere (Marjorie Stapp); and Sir Gawain (Rick Vallin).

Katzman and screenwriters George H. Plympton, Lewis Clay and David Mathews added a

rotund sidekick, Bors, played, surprisingly, by veteran B-Western menace Charles King.

Unfortunately, producer Katzman's pernicious methods rendered the serial less than first

class.
