Storyline

A NASA spacecraft proves Einstein right when, traveling faster than light, it ends up near King Arthur's Camelot. On board are big-hearted Tom Trimble and Hermes, the look-alike robot he built. Tom immediately makes friends with pretty Alisande and enemies with the awful knight Sir Mordred. It seems Mordred is out to oust Arthur, while Alisande's father is not the goose she believes him to be but is also a victim of Mordred's schemes. It's as well the Americans have arrived. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Twins arrive in Camelot
17 December 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Instead of a shrewd Yankee blacksmith from Connecticut it's a NASA scientist played by Dennis Dugan who arrives in Camelot at the court of King Arthur in Camelot. Dugan steps into the tradition of Will Rogers and Bing Crosby as the Disney Studios now do its version of the old Mark Twain tale.

Only Dugan is not looking to modernize the place. In fact he got trapped in the rocketship when it lifted off from Cape Kennedy. The passenger is supposed to be a robot who looks like Dennis Dugan which is only right since he designed him. So it's twins who arrive in Camelot .

But who can predict the ways of love as Dugan falls for peasant girl Sheila White, the human Dugan that is.

But there's trouble afoot as Kenneth More who is King Arthur is having trouble from Merlin who is played by Ron Moody and that ever villainous nephew of his Mordred played here by the Carry On troupe's Jim Dale.

With some NASA style ingenuity put to use Dugan takes up the King's cause and defeat's the villains as you would expect. As was in books and previous films. Will he defy time and space and get the girl though?

It worked differently for Will and Bing.
