Merlin and The Sword

Originally filmed in 1982, Arthur the King wasn’t able to secure a network-TV berth until April 26, 1985. Malcolm McDowell plays good King Arthur, whose dream of Camelot is endangered by the evil Morgan Le Fay, played by Candice Bergen in her TV-movie debut. That this might have been intended as the pilot for a weekly series is evidenced by the otherwise pointless inclusion of Dyan Cannon, cast as a ditzy 20th- Century tourist who falls through a time warp while roaming around Stonehenge. You’ll want to see Arthur the King if only to find out why minor-player Miro Pfeiffer’s character name is “Undead Knight”.
