       Additional Information  
     
      Against the backdrop of magnificent pageantry and dark magic that was medieval England, The Sword in the Stone re-creates the education and training of the boy named Arthur, who was to become the greatest of Britain's legendary rulers.
    Growing up in a colorful world peopled by knights in armor and fair damsels, foul monsters and evil witches, young Arthur slowly learns the code of the gentleman. Under the wise guidance of Merlin, the all-powerful magician for whom life progresses backward, the king-to-be becomes expert in falconry, jousting, hunting, and swordplay. He is transformed by his remarkable old tutor into various animals so that he may experience life from all points of view. In every conceivable way, he is readied for the day when he, alone among Englishmen, is destined to draw the marvelous sword from the magic stone and become the King of England.
