Before there was Kate and Leo. Before Brad and Angelina. And long before Kristen and Robert, there was Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero. The lush musical film "Camelot," starring Redgrave and Nero, came to theaters my sophomore year in high school, when I was as vulnerable to romance as I ever would be. As if the doomed love affair between Guinevere and Lancelot were not enough to wring the heart of a schoolgirl, there was the rumor —...

Hilariously, Touchstone Pictures has promoted King Arthur as a fresh tale, not a clone, and one or two smart publications have taken the bait. Still, it plays like a remake - not of Knights of the Round Table (1953) but of director Antoine Fuqua's previous Tears of the Sun (2003). To name the most pertinent similarities: A commando unit treks through war-torn territory on a perilous snatch-and-grab mission (in contemporary Nigeria there, antique northern Britain here). Its chief (Bruce Willis as a top Navy SEAL, Clive Owen as King Arthur)

Ballet Theatre of Maryland ended the season with the premiere of artistic director Dianna Cuatto's Excalibur - the choreographer's best and most ambitious work to date, in which she told the Arthurian legend sensitively through two hours of dance. All of Cuatto's hallmarks were apparent - lyrical partnering, strong athleticism, vigorous male dancers in stage combat, precise interweaving between lines, and the sheer beauty and power of their ensemble dancing. The dancers' individual growth was apparent, particularly from Joshua Lenihan's Lancelot and Christopher Pennix's King Lot. Celtic music provided by Maggie Sansone greatly enhanced the performance.

It's good to be the queen. Or to be King Arthur's queen, Guinevere, at least, right? Well, maybe it's just good to be a blue-painted warrior princess who runs around beating up boys all day. Whatever, Keira Knightley is clearly having a blast. And why shouldn't she? The 19-year-old English actress became her country's hottest export last year with attention-getting roles in the soccer saga Bend It Like Beckham, the blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and the all-star romantic roundelay Love, Actually.

If you like soccer, this is the day for you. If not, this is the day for them.* "Tremors."(noon-2 p.m., USA) -- This 1990 thriller comedy has just the right tone: Its laughs are funny, its scares are scary, and you're never tempted to laugh or get tense in the wrong places.Fred Ward and Kevin Bacon star, and "Tremors" is an admirable representative of the giant-subterranean-worm genre -- better than "Dune," almost as funny as "Beetlejuice," and almost as weird as "Lair of the White Worm."* "The Real World Marathon."
