The Private Life of Henry VIII (1933)

Type :   Production countries :  


In May 1536, immediately following the execution of his second wife, Anne Boleyn , King Henry VIII marries her maid, the plain Jane Seymour . However, she dies in childbirth eighteen months later. He then weds a German princess, Anne of Cleves (played by Laughton's real-life wife Elsa Lanchester). This marriage ends in divorce when Anne deliberately makes herself unattractive so that she can be free to marry her sweetheart (In an imaginative and high-spirited scene, Anne "wins her freedom" from Henry in a game of cards on their wedding night). After this divorce, Henry marries the beautiful and ambitious Lady Katherine Howard . She has rejected love all her life in favour of ambition, but after her marriage, she falls in love with Henry's handsome courtier Thomas Culpeper . Their liaison is discovered by Henry's advisers and the couple are executed. The weak and aging Henry consoles himself--such as he can--with a final marriage to the shrewish Catherine Parr .
