Nicely mounted but fictionalized account of royal intrigues, in which Charles Laughton reprised his role of King Henry VIII (after winning Oscar for it back in 1933).
The film contains just enough actual history to maintain a patina of truth but it's really more a star vehicle for Jean Simmons, she's very good, and on that level it's very successful. Laughton gets to chew the high grade ham repeating his Oscar winning role of Henry the VIII.
Costumes aplenty here in fine colorful splendour as intrigue stalks the courts of England. The question as always: who's calling the shots here? Simmons and Kerr are ever photogenic and Granger can wear a costume with the best of them. The outcome, though Hollywood-ised, is history, while the film itself is only mildly amusing.
