A poor boy named Arthur learns the power of love, kindness, knowledge and bravery with the help of a wizard called Merlin in the path to become one of the most beloved kings in English history.
Tudor Owen, Thurl Ravenscroft, Rickie Sorensen, Junius Matthews, and Martha Wentworth appeared in One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961) two years earlier. Unfortunately for Wentworth and Owen, this film was their last film role before their retirement.
A legend is sung, / Of when England was young, / And knights were brave and bold. / The good king had died, / And no one could decide / Who was rightful heir to the throne. / It seemed that the land / Would be torn by war, / Or saved by a miracle ...
When Wart is climbing the small dead tree behind Kay on his hunting trip, he is wearing red tights. In the next shot he has bare legs, but then he has his red tights again.
The UK DVD version omits part of Madam Mim's first line "Sounds like someone's sick. How lovely. I do hope it's serious. Something dreadful." She now says "Sounds like someone's sick. How lovely."
