The "30th Anniversary Edition", released on video in 1997, features the original sound mix as it was originally intended. Because of this, some sound effects and fragments of dialogue previously nearly drowned out by music are now heard distinctly. There is even a section--the comically disastrous, very first meeting of Guenevere and Lancelot, in which we hear offscreen court musicians playing on mandolins, whereas previously this scene was acted without music.
In the "30th Anniversary Edition" of the film, the opening credits fade out to a discordant, ominous musical note, as if anticipating something tragic about to happen. This is not the case on any other release of "Camelot", including the theatrical releases AND the DVD, in which the orchestral rendition of the song "Camelot" (as heard during the opening credits), fades out softly and peacefully.
