Excalibur
Robert Addie's first big break as an actor is playing Mordred. He was only 20 at the time of filming and his experience as an adept horseman and his close resemblance to the director's son (who liked playing Morded as a child) helped win him the role.

As Mordred he easily rides around one-handed while busy killing and impaling King Arthur's cohorts. As the son from hell, he ends up giving both mommy and daddy grief with his murderous escapades.

Serious gripe .. the obscuring silly gold helmet conceals Robert's gorgeous features most of the time from view and the pectorals on the armor (complete with nipples) are ridiculous. Highlight of the film ... Robert looks fantastic covered in oil.
