King Arthur in Hollywood

The Legend of Arthur

   An examination of the blend of history, mythology, religion, and prophetic dreams that constitutes the Arthurian legend. The program shows us Glastonbury and other sites where the legend is set, illuminations and other illustrations of the Arthur stories, and covers both the principal stories and their meanings, particularly the search for the Holy Grail and for purity—a search that must end within the searcher himself.
