Ye olde Englishe poem, filtered through Mallory, Weeks, and United Artists (who tampered with the director's original cut). It's an only just watchable tale of the Arthurian gallant having a go at the grass-coloured magical being, which never makes it as a serious attempt to film the original text, nor as an out-and-out fantasy. Weeks had another try ten years later, remaking it as Sword of the Valiant, with very little more success.
