5.0 out of 5 stars two fantastic movies finally arriving on DVD July 16, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was so glad to hear that both films were being released as a duel set. "Anne of the Thousand Days" and "Mary Queen of Scots" are independent enough to stand alone, but even more charming when watched back to back, since the latter references minor details in the former.

"Anne of the Thousand Days" is the story of Anne Boleyn and how she was pursued by Henry VIII at the cost of his marriage and the fate of England's understanding with the Catholic church. It is both a charming retelling and one that has a particular bite to it, particularly as Anne's world starts to fall apart when Henry's eye is cast upon the beautiful Jane Seymour. For a late sixties production, the value of filmmaking is excellent; the costuming is absolutely gorgeous, and the performances are memorable. If nothing else, Anne's final speech to her husband while imprisoned in the Tower of London will linger with you -- that it will be their daughter, Elizabeth, who is remembered for her reign.

"Mary Queen of Scots" does not deal merely with the title lady, but also her cousin Elizabeth, whose performance is beyond brilliance. It does dally a bit with the facts but no one really cares since it is presented in such an interesting manner. There are some gruesome aspects that seem a bit startling in contrast with the beauty of the film, but nevertheless it carries quite an impact, and the chance to see Mary and Elizabeth head to head in a couple of different scenes is well worth your time. I particularly liked the depiction of Elizabeth as something of a jealous, temperamental woman, since she was known for her tantrums, just like her dear father.

I pre-ordered this the moment I learned about it, and look forward to viewing both films in all their former glory. And if you're anything like me, a fan of the Tudor generations, you'll want to add it to your collection as well.

This is a beautifully done and fairly accurate movie about the short-lived romance of Anne Boleyn and Henry Tudor. The costumes are wonderful, if not altogether accurate for the period. It is one of the best movies done about the Tudor scandal, though it only covers Anne's story. My only question is this: Why is Catherine of Aragon ALWAYS cast as a modern hispanic woman??? There are several portraits of the lady, all showing her to have been a pale red-head. Spanish royalty of that period were very aryan, thank you very much, all you casting directors out there!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good to look at but not good history September 5, 2008
Format:DVD
I realize it can be tiresome for reviewers to expect popular history movies to be on the spot when it comes to historical accuracy, but frankly these movies are sometimes all the general public has to make historical judgements. Therefore, I'm going to be tiresome.

The movie "Mary, Queen of Scots" was very nice to look at, but it fell into the movie industry's natural temptations to sensationalize at the expense of historical accuracy(why that was necessary is beyond me, since her life was sensational enough as it was).

I am not referring to the typical charge that Mary never met Elizabeth, which is a mistake made not only in "Mary, Queen of Scots," but in other movie treatments of Mary (such as the recent British television series on Elizabeth).

No, I'm referring to the depiction of Mary's relationship with Lord Bothwell. In the movie she falls in love with the bawdy Scottish Lord who killed her husband, Darnley. In reality, as you would see from reading the definitive biography of Mary by Antonia Fraser, Mary was actually a victim of not only Bothwell's treachery, but that of the other Scottish lorders who plotted with Bothwell to kill Darnley. Bothwell actually kidnapped and raped Mary. He then told her all of this was done at the request of her powerful lords. She married Bothwell only to accomodate the lords and to bring peace. It backfired with the very lords who consipired with Bothwell turned against him, and eventually against Mary. That is how she lost her crown. Some of the very people who should have been protecting her (including her half brother) then concocted conspiracy theories to defame her good name--all to make way for them to rule in her absence.

Complicated, yes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Movies. Package could have been better September 24, 2007
Format:DVD
Great Movies. Watching Anne of the Thousand Days as an adult, I was surprised to see so many moral implications in the decisions of the protagonists, from Thomas Moore's refusal to renounce his beliefs, to Anne's choice of offering her daughter a chance to become queen at the expense of leaving her an orphan.

I was slightly disappointed with the package. Despite the thumbs up on having each movie on a separate DVD, the movies do not have an option to select an individual chapter. (there are chapters and you can jump from one to the next, for example in order to get to chapter 10 you have to jump through 1 - 9 instead of going to a separate screen to select chapter 10, like on 99% of DVD-s out there ...). The image is shaking in some minor instances - this may have something to do with the transfer.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's about time! August 28, 2007
By M. Ward
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been waiting for "Anne" to come out on DVD for years! I saw it the year it came out when we were on a family vacation in Florida and fell in love with the movie. Genevieve Bujold is a feisty, flirty, and highly ambitious Anne Boleyn. "Mary" is an excellent movie as well--Redgrave creates a queen who rules with her heart instead of her head, which leads to her downfall.
It's about time these two films became available.
