Synopsis
The Arthurian legend, distilled curiously through an Alice in Wonderland-type device (Dyan Cannon is a contemporary tourist who, while wandering around Stonehenge, tumbles into a hole in the ground and comes face to face with King Arthur and subjects), provided the framework of this rather bizarre epic with a dubious TV history. Filmed in late 1982 as the television acting debut of Candice Bergen (playing a wraith-like Morgan Le Fay), "Arthur the King" was scheduled for broadcast three times -- in three different years -- before finally getting on the air, by which time Bergen had made her debut in "Hollywood Wives" and Malcolm McDowall had acted both in "Gulag" on cable TV and as the wolf opposite his wife, Mary Steenburgen, in "Little Red Riding Hood" on "Faerie Tale Theater."
