When I was
a small child, my father sent me a book:L'Ancient France - La Chevelrie
et les Croisades. Inside this book was this picture. I think it and
the inscription speak for themselves (if you know French and a little bit
about Arthurian film history).
I'll bet he never imagined that twelve years later I would get involved in an activity that would allow me to imitate that pose. Claude Jean Pierre LaCoudre is dead now (cancer of the esophagus, 1988), but I like to think he would have been amused to see this.
The photo is from the set of the movie "Lancelot of the Lake" directed by Robert Bresson. My father is listed in the credits as "Joseph-Patrick Le Quidre". I got the video of this movie recently. He plays a companion of Mordred's and actually has a couple of lines in it!
...and plenty more Lancelotian and Arthurian stuff through Amazon.com (a small percentage of the purchase price will go to support this website):
