pasted from the Siskel Center website:
This lavishly produced costume drama was an enormous, critically acclaimed hit, establishing William Randolph Hearst protégée Marion Davies as a bankable star and credible actress. She gives a winning performance, full of sass and charm, as Mary Tudor, Henry VIII's kid sister, whose heart belongs to Captain of the Guard Charles Brandon (Stanley) but whose blustering brother wants to palm her off in an alliance-cementing marriage to France's doddering monarch Louis XII. The excellent restoration from the only surviving 35mm nitrate print includes color-tinting and recreated hand-colored effects. 2K DCP digital restoration from Undercrank Productions. (MR)
