Disney’s retelling of T. H. White’s fantasy novel of King Arthur’s youth was made into a feature film in 1963, the last animated film to be released before Walt Disney’s death. According to the legend, the King of England died leaving no heir to the throne, and a sword appeared in London embedded in a rock, with the inscription that the first person who pulled the sword from the stone would be the rightful heir to the throne. Years later, an orphan boy named Arthur removed the sword and was named King. Gambia 1059
