Directed: George Sidney
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.
