Thomas Malory in Camelot?
« on: 2014-03-07, 02:11:54 »
Cool fact that I realized. When watching the motion picture Camelot (1967), I noticed the boy at the end of the movie was named "Tom". Now this boy is Tom of Warwickshire in this movie. The writer of Le Morte de' Arthur is Thomas Malory of Warwickshire. The boy was knighted by Arthur at the end of this film. Thomas Malory was also a knight. I find it pretty awesome that Arthur told Tom to keep his story alive and he did by writing Le Morte de' Arthur. Just a cool little thing they included in the film.
