Summary, etc.:
The film that made Charles Laughton a star tells the story of the infamous King Henry VIII and his tumultuous matrimonial journey. Renowned for his excess, King Henry VIII took on six wives during his rule, each marriage ending more violently than the last. Instances of treason, execution, and beheading are all cited as reasons for divorce for Henry VIII and his bundle of brides. This comedic take on English royalty is widely considered to be the first film to define British cinema in the sound era. Through dark and dramatic storytelling, this enticing period piece will leave you glad that you never married into royalty!
