Camelot (1967), written by Alan Jay Lerner (book and screenplay) and Frederick Loewe (music), legendary creators of such Broadway musical classics as Gigi and My Fair Lady, focuses on a brief mythical period when chivalry, nobility, and fairness were the guiding principals behind ruling a nation. Such a golden time will, no doubt, flower following our own Presidential election, but until then watching this film and hearing its songs — “How To Handle a Woman,” “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “Camelot” — you may share the yearning for what is best and most noble in man- and womankind while acknowledging the difficulties arising out of the relationships between the two.
