King Arthur: Merlin, make me a hawk! Let me fly away from here!

In addition to actual Medieval castles in Spain used in this film, a castle was built on the back lot of Warner Brothers Studios for closer shots and direct storyline action. Long known at the studio as the "Camelot Castle" after filming ended, it was used in other films. In 1972, the Camelot Castle was renovated into a Tibetan Lamasery for the musical remake of Lost Horizon, and it was used extensively in the TV series Kung Fu. In the 1980's, the back lot castle was torn down to make room for an office building. Fortunately, the Alcazar de Segovia and the Coca Castle remain in Spain where they are both popular tourist attractions.
Franco Nero was cast because he had the right look to play Lancelot.
