The Three CommentEARS

Episode 7: The Sword in the Stone

Welcome back to From Screen to Theme's monthly series: The Three CommentEARS! Your commentators for this trip to Medieval England are Gamer Tuesday writer Pedro Hernandez, Saturday Matinee writer Albert Gutierrez, and 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.
