On the night of their marriage the King leaves Copenhagen on a pleasure trip abroad, but his fast life proves too much for his weak constitution. Summoned to attend him, an ambitious young doctor realises that here is a great opportunity. He revives the King and, tremendously impressed, the King takes him back to Copenhagen. A love affair develops between the doctor and the Princess - but it is to have terrible consequences. Written by Aline

Imitation Queen Christina
7 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is a clear attempt to imitate the success of Queen Christina.The problem is that Carroll is no Garbo and Clive Brook is certainly no John Gilbert.Written by Ben Levy and directed by Victor Saville,the only word that can be used to describe this film is dull.The British film industry did make costume pictures like this in the thirties in the mistaken belief that they could beat Holllywood at their own game.Further more they 20 years age gap between the two leads means they had about as much chemistry as a plate of blaming.In any event Carroll lacks warmth and Brooks is as wooden as usual.as. a result there is little believable romance despite Carroll's heaving bosom.
