Joan Collins does her best as an also-ran love interest, but she is lumbered with that 'girls-are-made-to-look-pretty-and-be-kissed' 1950s-woman kind of character.
Bette Davis gives her all,& now and again makes the sparks fly. As Elizabeth her gait is very manly. Whether this was due to a very cumbersome costume, or to a thoroughly mistaken idea of what Elizabeth was actually like, I cannot say. Certainly Elizabeth's contemporaries - friend and foe - described the Queen as graceful even in old age, when she had lost her hair and her teeth & her fine skin.
I would describe this as a Sunday afternoon film. Suitable for passing an hour or so after a good meal, and made - it would seem - with no more than a Sunday afternoon's thought: unimaginative and pedestrian.
The actors do their best with stagey direction and excessively clear lighting.
Perhaps we now know too much about these historic figures; so many recent television series have made them familiar, warts and all.
