Rodgers and Hart

A Connecticut Yankee

More than a half-century before Monty Python’s Spamalot, the knights and ladies of King Arthur’s court were already on Broadway, singing and dancing in gleefully anachronistic fashion in Rodgers and Hart’s delightful musicalization of Mark Twain’s classic novel, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. This 1955 television adaptation, which was produced and directed by Max Liebman boasts a magnificent cast led by Eddie Albert, Janet Blair, Gale Sherwood, John Conte, and the legendary Boris Karloff as King Arthur. The unforgettable score features such songs as “Thou Swell,” “My Heart Stood Still,” and “To Keep My Love Alive.” 77 minutes, black and white, mono, 4:3 standard, All regions.
