Your review of 'The Six Wives of Henry VIII (1970) (DVD)' has been sent.
“Yes! A masterpiece of TV Drama."Tread carefully, my lord. No one is indispensible in my Court!"With many a key figure sent to The Tower, and heads a'rollin', this production effortlessly evokes the policitical and marital power games of the day.Keith Michell's potent portrayal of Henry the human monster is a joy to watch, especially as age takes its toll. And the collection of females victims (wives) is equally compelling viewing.This is a welcome addition to any DVD library, even if you still have the original VHS tapes, like my wife and I.”
