Can any ODeckers help me remember this movie from my youth (80s ~ early 90s)? It was mostly about Merlin but he was stuck inside a tree for most of it. Arthur was not really in it. I think he was already in Avalon. Merlin could communicate with his lady love (Nimue?) somehow and they helped a couple get together or fight the villain. The couple may have been from modern times, but this was not an adaptation of Connecticut Yankee. Time travel was almost definately involved. I have the feeling Merlin and/or Nimue was played by a genre actor. Your aid is greatly needed, valiant questors.
