245. Prop “Excalibur” sword from Camelot. (Warner Bros., 1967) In Camelot, the romantic Lerner and Lowe musical telling of King Arthur and his beloved Guenevere, the most important prop must be the Excalibur sword.

One side of the blade is engraved with, “Whoso Pulleth Out This Sword Of This Stone Is Rightwise King Born Of All England”. Used in three pivotal scenes in the film; the knighting of Lancelot, the christening of the Round Table and the finale. The sword is also spoken of when Arthur meets Guinevere and relates the story of how he retrieved it from the stone to win her over. In production-used, very good condition. With uniform tarnish on the blade. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
