5.0 out of 5 stars O Henry, O Henry, 20 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anne of the Thousand Days [DVD][1969] (DVD)
I love old historical movies. The acting is real, the movie do not rely on special effects and in most instances the costumes, scenery and props are very real.

Well this movie tops them all. Genevieve Bujold plays Anne to perfection, showing just the right amount of fire to challenge the arrogant Henry. Richard Burton, well for me this is one of the best performances of Henry that I have seen - even if it not historically perfect. The supporting cast all carry their rolls well and the overall impression is one of majesty, sculdugery, lust and passion.

One is angered at injustice and moved to tears by sadness, laughs at the irony of certain events and empathises with the plight of the stricken in the chain of events that unwinds.

I first saw this movie many years ago when it was first released, and seeing it again now in our "modern age" am just as impressed as I was 40 years ago.

The quality of the DVD is excellent. A pity there are no special features. However for anyone who enjoys good acting and an historical movie this is a must for your collection.
