Jul 04,  · The movie is based upon the book The Eagle of the Ninth () by Rosemary Sutcliff, best known to Arthurian enthusiasts as the author of Sword at Sunset (), the first Arthurian novel to have treated King Arthur from a historically accurate perspective. The Lantern Bearers is a wonderful book. Sword at Sunset, to my mind one of the best ever written in this genre. But the Sutcliff‘s Arthur is rooted as much in history as in myth–not just the tragic king of Le Morte d’Arthur or the heroic/magical figure of traditional Arthurian fantasy.
