‘Camelot’ 45th Anniversary Blu-ray Arrives April 24th

Camelot -- the musical classic based on the Tony Award-winning stage production from Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick 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.

Camelot 45th Anniversary Blu-ray Book Blu-ray

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.

Camelot will be offered in WHV's premium Blu-ray book packaging ($35.99 SRP) including 36 pages of photos, trivia and more. This disc also features a bonus CD soundtrack sampler, as well as a wide variety of bonus features (see below). Pre-order date is March 20.
