The film received very mixed reviews, but nevertheless it's one of my favorites. Why? Because you get to witness the early relationship of Franco Nero and Vaness Redgrave (aka THE BEST COUPLE EVER). Nero and Redgrave famously had a brief but passionate relationship after meeting on the set of Camelot, which resulted in a son born in 1969. In a real-life version of Letters to Juliet (a 2010 film that Redgrave and Nero starred in), the couple re-connected many years later, with Nero even walking Redgrave's daughter Natasha Richardson down the aisle when she married Liam Neeson in 1994. The couple were finally wed in 2006, almost forty years after they first met. Isn't that just the most swoon-worthy story ever? Watching them together as a couple onscreen in Camelot always makes me feel like I have the most delightful secret -- I want to whisper to them through the film and tell them that they end up together. I can't do that (obviously) but it's great fun to watch a young couple who will soon become one of the great love stories of our time.
