Lancelot & Guinevere - Through the years

The story of King Arthur is famous the world over and the doomed love story within that legend, between Lancelot and Guinevere, has often been portrayed at the movies. I could have easily made a post about the love triangle between King Arthur, Guinevere and Sir Lancelot but decided only on the two latter. Which one is the best in your mind?

Robert Taylor & Ava Gardner in KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE

Cornel Wilde and Jean Wallace in SWORD OF LANCELOT (aka Lancelot & Guinevere)

Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero in CAMELOT

Nicholas Clay and Cherie Lunghi in EXCALIBUR

Richard Gere and Julia Ormond in FIRST KNIGHT

Ioan Gruffudd and Keira Knightley in KING ARTHUR

Nicholas Clay played the chaste Lancelot far better than any of the others, to be tested by and destroyed the vixon the was Guin. The others were too, shall we say, experienced to make the fall much of an event.
