Richard Harris, Camelot, Dumbledore

As has been noted elsewhere, Richard Harris has died. I told Viv this, and she said "who?" Viv isn't noted for recognising who an actor is, but when I said that he had played Dumbledore, she seemed to have some idea who he was. The conversation drifted onto films in general. I now have videotape copies of my three favourite films. These are
  1. The Odessa File
  2. The Towering Inferno
  3. Kind Hearts and Coronets

The conversation wandered again, and it wasn't long before Viv told me that her favourite film was probably Camelot. Amazing. And who played King Arthur in that film?
