Did You Know?


One of the most shrewd parts of the promotion of "Henry VIII" as it was toured was the inclusion of a prize essay competition for school children, presented as ' "Henry VIII" Film As An Educator' using a standard preset plan that was also adopted for use in Australia and New Zealand. The prize would be won by the best essay on "Henry VIII" 'as presented at [name of cinema]' - so ensuring that children entering the competition had to watch the film, at least once, to write about it, having paid to enter the cinema, as would have each member of their family who accompanied them. The prize-money offered varied according to the size of the locality it was being screened at, being as much as 5 Guineas (£5.25) in the larger cities - a very large sum, as calculation of its worth now shows. The essay itself also had variable lengths required, either 200 or 300 words, again depending on the size of the town or city and the prize-money. A number of cinemas also offered medals (advertised as "gold" and as "silver" - though whether each one was pure gold or pure silver remains to be found out) to successful prize-winners. There is no evidence of a shortage of entrants for the competition anywhere. Surviving copies of competition essays, whether winners or other entrants, have not been found yet. See more »
