Lemme tell you this. When I was a kid (as I was born from the 90's), I enjoyed the film.
If you notice, all the stuff they have, they don't notice a memorable Disney film. They just skipped, "One Hundred & One Dalmatians, The Jungle Book?" WTF! It's suppose to be memorable.
We can at least use a buck for it. It's about a wizard & an owl at their cottage, or something. They tell a story of Young King Arthur and the Sword & The Stone.
I don't remember very much, but at least this movie remains.
THAT'S MY REVIEW & GOOD NIGHT!

Sword in the Stone

The Worst Disney Feature
I'm just completing a viewing of all 40+ Disney classics. When I am finished, I will rank them; but I don't have to finish to know that Sword in the Stone will rank last. This is worse than Home on the Range, worse than the Rescuers, and far worse than The Black Cauldron (which is sometimes cited as the worst Disney feature.) Sure, The Black Cauldron was a mess that butchered its source material, but it wasn't a Sword-in-the-Stone-mess. The songs are poor, and the animation is often suspect -- but that maybe be said of the worst Disney features. The characters are either bland (Wart makes the Disney version of Taran in The Black Cauldron look interesting by comparison -- this is a major feat) or terrible (in the case of Merlin, one of the few completely embarassing failures in Disney character history.) Yet, what distinguishes The Sword of the Stone from merely weak Disney efforts, is the complete lack of plot: nothing happens. The plot may be stupid in Home on the Range, but it does exist. Wart wanders around in poorly edited scenes until Wart takes the Sword in the Stone in an anticlimatic, but merciful end to the film. I was shocked to find out that Walt was alive when this disaster was created -- he obviously was completely preoccupied at the time. Avoid this movie at all costs -- and no, this isn't the sort of movie that fussy animations buffs will hate, but kids will love -- keep the kids away, too.

The Sword In The Stone
The only truly memorable scene was the duel between Merlin and that evil witch. The rest of the film just drags along too slow to really sustain any interest.
