Knights of the Round Table (1953)

Knights of the Round Table (1953, USA) C-115m. SCOPE ** D: Richard Thorpe. Starring Robert Taylor, Ava Gardner, Mel Ferrer, Anne Crawford, Stanley Baker, Laurence Harvey, Desmond Llewelyn. In the Middle Ages, the title characters gather to bring Arthur to the throne but meet fierce resistance in evil Modred. Well-known chivalry epic has too many dialogue sequences and a direction that does not really know what to make of new CinemaScope process. In fact, this was the first film the MGM studios made in widescreen (2.55:1). The flat IVANHOE (1952), also photographed by Freddie Young, was better.
