Lerner and Loewe’s Magical Musical Classic
Winner of Three 1968 Academy Awards®
CAMELOT 45th Anniversary
Premium Blu-ray™ Book
With a Bonus CD Soundtrack Sampler
Debuts on April 24 from Warner Home Video
Burbank, CA., January 9, 2012 – Camelot -- the musical classic based on the Tony Award®- winning stage production from Lerner and Loewe (“Gigi,” “My Fair Lady”) will celebrate its 45th anniversary this year with a newly remastered Blu-ray™ version, debuting April 24 from Warner Home Video (WHV).
Based on T.H. White’s “The Once and Future King,” this lavish film adaptation recalls a fleeting, mythical time of love and chivalry -- the reign of King Arthur and the Knights of The Round Table. Although torn apart by the conflicts between passion, love, honor and duty, it was a golden era that could have been ... and could yet be. Richard Harris (Harry Potter 1 and 2, Unforgiven) stars as King Arthur, with Vanessa Redgrave (Coriolanus, Letters to Juliet)opposite him as Queen Guinevere and Franco Nero, Redgrave’s current husband (Die Hard 2) as Lancelot. Joshua Logan directed and Jack L. Warner produced.
Winner of three 1968 Academy Awards® (Best Adaptation Scoring, Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design), this memorable musical contains numerous unforgettable musical numbers, including "If Ever I Would Leave You," "What Do The Simple Folk Do?" “The Lusty Month of May," and, of course, the eminently hummable classic title song.
