Anne Of The Thousand Days (1969) FS R2 Retail DVD
This film evokes wonderfully the darkness and machinations underlying the splendour of Henry's court, in a way that even equals A Man for All Seasons. Bujold's Anne is a brilliant rendering of the strong, spirited woman who beguiled and held Henry at bay before finally succumbing to the aura surrounding his majesty. Her emotional journey through to final betrayal by the man she has come to love, is hauntingly echoed by Irene Papas' portrayal, on the margins of the story, of Henry's discarded Queen Catherine. Burton's Henry is basically a philanderer who justifies his behaviour in the eyes ofmore… God by the need to father a male successor. Savage and sensitive, a poet yet a murderer - Burton plumbs the depths of his evil and self-deception. Anne's bravery and detachment when facing death; her spineless father - nicely captured by Michael Hordern; Anthony Quayle's corrupt, ruthless and yet oddly sympathetic Wolsey: it all leaves a vivid and often historically accurate impression of a story that will never lose its hold.
