Kitty Hollywood Reviews Young Bess


Young Bess – MGM – 1953
Directed: George Sidney
Jean Simmons
Stewart Granger
Deborah Kerr
Charles Laughton

The opening sequence says it all, really.
“Her father, Henry VIII, called her Young Bess.
Her mother, Anne Boleyn, ended on the block.
Born at a time when heads fell around her like cabbage stalks, –
– to grow up at all was an achievement.
To grow up to greatness was a miracle.”

There’s also some really excellent ‘You Know Henry Is Getting Sick Of His Wife When He Fondles Her Throat Too Much’ business. It’s just a fabulous technicolor ride, really. I almost dyed my hair out of love for Jean Simmons and this movie. Almost.
