Quest for Camelot (1998) (part 3 of 7)

Morning comes, and the horns of distress are still sounding. It carries across the land, where the sound reaches the workers at Juliana’s farm. They quickly realize Excalibur has been stolen. So, apparently, people can interpret such information solely from horn calls. Kayley is nearby and hears this, natch, so she rushes into the house.

Kayley tells her mom she wants to head out and help the knights in this time of peril, going on adventures, saving Excalibur on her own, even. Mom says absolutely not. She and a dressmaker are more interested in fitting her for a new dress she doesn’t want.

Mom says the knights will work together to find the sword. “One day you’ll understand what Camelot means. Until then, you’ll stay here with me.” Kayley accepts this, but like any rebellious young girl (at least in movies), she runs off to her room. As an aside, now that we’re hearing adult Kayley speak, Jessalyn Gilsig’s voice work is so fluttering and precocious that it seems like a parody of young British women.

Miss Stevens came to the Agony Booth in the process of looking for reviews of Trail of the Pink Panther and has since established herself as (among other things) a notoriously devoted Peter Sellers fan, a Michael Jackson deconstructionist, and an all-round critiquer. She has delusions of success as a writer but has a day job just in case. "Sapphire" credits whatever success she has as a Boother to her love of the whimsical, eccentric side of cinema - while others might blanche at the madness of the films she's helped recap, she dives in every time.
