Trama e commenti:

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - «The familiar legend of the Round Table is brought to the screen in a low-budget but surprisingly effective effort. Green Knight Green comes to court and asks any of the knights to take his best chop, on the condition that he then be allowed to return the favor. Head takes up the challenge and with one swing of his broad-sword lops the challenger's head off. Green calmly picks up the severed head and places it atop his shoulders, then tells Head to come to his castle to receive his side of the bargain. After a terrific start, the picture lags as Head waits and worries for the appointed time he's to have his head chopped off. Not often seen, but worth checking out».
