      Audience Member Hard to find, but a delightful documentary for those who can. There is something here for everyone. Those still around who were on hand for the rise of what became today's Renaissance Festivals will enjoy the abundant footage from rural 1960s California, transformed into a semblance of Elizabethan England. We who discovered such events much later, as they spread across the US and beyond, will be fascinated with the anecdotes and insights into how it all began. And anyone hitherto oblivious to it all will surely find wonder and amusement at all this seeming nonsense and the good time clearly being had by all.
