Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - «Wealthy young Martin Cavendish wants to marry his mother's secretary rather than a snooty titled woman his mother has chosen for his bride. One night while reading a book about chivalry, Cavendish is knocked unconscious by a burglar, and, in a dream, he finds himself in in Camelot in the sixthcentury. Thereafter, the film follows the general outline of the events in Twain's novel with abundant contemporaneous touches added to the screenplay. Douglas Fairbanks was originally offered the title role in this film, but he turned it down. As with the other screen adaptations of Twain's novel, this film eschews any of the misanthropy in the original in favor of comedy».
