This collection of eleven essays details more than 75 films, from Edwin Porter's 1904 Parsifal to the animated Quest for Camelot in 1998. A variety of critical perspectives are provided. The medieval and modern worlds collide in The Fisher King and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade; issues of femininity and depictions of Morgan Le Fay are analyzed in the 1931 Connecticut Yankee and in Excalibur; concerns of masculinity are examined in First Knight and Dragonheart. A comprehensive filmography, selective bibliography and over 40 film stills complete this critical appreciation of the rich and varied cinematic tradition of Arthur.
