A full set of production-used storyboard copies from Jerry Zucker’s 1995 romantic action-adventure First Knight.
A retelling of the legend of King Arthur, the film follows the story of Lancelot (Richard Gere) who falls for Guinevere (Julia Ormond) even though she is due to wed Arthur (Sean Connery). At the same time, rebel knight Prince Malagant (Ben Cross) attempts to take power from the King and his Knights of the Round Table.
This set of storyboards charts the film’s entire story and consists of 52 white A4 pages printed with monochrome illustrations within pre-set frames. There are additional pages detailing appendix scenes. Handwritten notes accompany each frame to provide detailed directions for frame composition, camera movements and cast actions – among other production notes. The name of stunt co-ordinator Greg Powell is written at the top of the first page.
The front and rearmost pages are stained and there are light folds and tears on the edges of many of the leaves. Despite this production-based wear, the storyboard set remains in good overall condition.
