Look into the eyes of the dragon! A Making Of EXCALIBUR Documentary Needs Our Help!!
We're just now finding out about this, which is hardly optimal given the project's rapidly approaching fundraising deadline. Nonetheless, let's see what we can do...
John Boorman's EXCALIBUR. Stunning beauty. Ghastly violence. Bob Peak's incomparable promo art...
