The Three CommentEARS
Episode 7: The Sword in
Welcome back to From Screen to
Theme's monthly series: The Three CommentEARS!
Your commentators for this trip to Medieval
Gamer Tuesday writer Pedro
Saturday Matinee writer Albert
Once Upon A Recap writer Kelvin Cedeno. For this episode, we take a look at
1963's The Sword in the Stone, which
ironically had nothing to do with the recent
birth of His Royal Highness Prince George
Alexander Louis Mountbatten-Windsor of
Cambridge. Each of us share different
perspectives towards this film, as we discuss
the production of the film, literary comparisons
to both Arthurian Legend and the first book in
T.H. White's "The Once and Future King"
tetralogy, intentional anachronisms that both
contemporize and date the film, and our own
personal views towards the film in both a
childhood context and as academic study.
