'Greg Walker convincingly connects Alexander Korda's The Private Life of Henry VIII to disarmament debates in the 1930's, and singles out a telling reflection of the film's overwhelming success: one of the wife actresses subsequently made a packet endorsing Shredded Wheat.' -Chris Wood, The Times 'This is an excellent addition to an already distinguished series, edited by the doyen of British Film Historians, Jeffrey Richards.' -Nicholas Cull, Film International
