Jabberwocky (1977)

1 corrected entry

Corrected entry: The swords used by the knights are referred to as "broadswords" by characters in the movie. This term, however, was not used in the Middle Ages, a knight's weapon was simply referred to as an "arming sword". To use "broadsword" for a knight's sword is a 19th century invention, to distinguish them from smaller weapons.


Correction: They wouldn't have used 'arming sword' - they would have used words you or I would not have been able to understand. They use modern English so audiences can understand the film, and that is not an error. See similar corrections for Braveheart and Troy.
