5.0 out of 5 stars 'Team Glenda' Makes This Such A Stunning Film, 21 Nov 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mary Queen Of Scots [DVD] [1971] (DVD)
This beautiful masterpiece recounts the life and times of Mary Queen of Scots during the feud with her cousin,the remarkable Elizabeth I.

When it comes down to it, you're either a Lizzy or a Mary fan.

I am all for Elizabeth I (needless to say, Glenda Jackson is the greatest Elizabeth I ever, and not even Miss Blanchett has been able to beat Glenda's tremendous portrayal).

Mary Queen Of Scots [DVD] [1971]is filled with intrigue, royal romance and stunning historical detail that is perhaps not all correct as Elizabeth and Mary did not actually meet however this is the greatest part of this classic film.

This is the second time for Academy Award-winning actress Glenda Jackson to adorn the role of Elizabeth I as she was tremendous first time around in the Emmy Award-winning production, Elizabeth R (3 Disc Box Set) [1971] [DVD]. This fantastic six part series possesses an all-star cast, enthralling performances, gripping drama, and all the splendour and ceremony befitting this celebrated Queen. You will not be disappointed, to me, Glenda Jackson is the spirit of Elizabeth I personified.

Mary Queen Of Scots [DVD] [1971] is a must for all Mary, Queen of Scots or Elizabeth I fans.

good enthusiastic review I agree totally that Glenda Jackson is the best Elizabeth I on screen and I will shortly have to replace my copy of the bbc series Elizabeth R as I have played it to death over the years it is a complete masterpiece. History wise I can see why Cecil and Walsingham in particular wanted Mary executed and Elizabeth's reluctance, they would remember Mary Tudor's persecution of protestants and would take no chance of repeat. As a Scot I am very sympathetic towards Mary, as a catholic she had very little chance coming back to a fiercely protestant Island without the council of a cecil in her corner, her decision to marry bothwell was unbelievable but was it forced on her through blackmail who knows..I give her the benefit of doubt
