A tribute to over 70 years of the most traditional epic storytelling: medieval movie genre, stories of knights, kings, queens, and Arthurian legend. For my friend Claudia who had her shares of trials lately. Movies included were The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) with Olivia de Havilland and Errol Flynn, (Ivanhoe (1952) with Elizabeth Taylor and Robert Taylor, Knights of the Round Table (1953) with Ava Gardner and Robert Taylor, El Cid (1961) with Sophia Loren and Charlton Heston, Excalibur (1981) with the relatively unknown Cherie Lunghi and Nigel Terry, Braveheart (1995) with Sophie Marceau and Mel Gibson, A Knights Tale (2001) with Shannyn Sossamon and the late Heath Ledger. In a way, a tribute to Heath since I normally do classic movies but I could not leave his film out since it really had the best jousting scenes. Liam Neeson is also in this video, see if you can find him. Robin Hood won 3 Oscars and Braveheart won 5 Oscars. Excalibur is a greatly underrated, beautiful film. In order, music by Basil Poledouris (I used for titles; Title Theme, from Flesh and Blood), Vangelis (In jousting/knighting; Across the Mountains, from Alexander), Nino Rota (I open with Sophia and end with kisses; Romeo and Juliet), Carl Orffs O Fortuna (in Arthur's wedding until battle) from Carmina Burana) and Siegfrieds Funeral March from (I used for ending with swords; Gotterdammerung by Richard Wagner). The last two pieces were used by Trevor Jones for the Excalibur soundtrack.
