The story opens in Copenhagen in the year 1776 on the wedding night of the King and Princess Caroline Mathilde. But the marriage was a political alliance, and the Princess felt only repugnance for her dissolute husband. 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

Watchable historic tale.
24 July 2014 | by (Co. Kerry Ireland) – See all my reviews

I am adding reviews of all films I'v seen that so far lack one, this is a rather overlooked film that may well gain more viewers (mine is it's 11th vote) now that it's available on DVD as part of the 'Ealing Studios Rarities Collection vol #13' which is how I have seen it, my brief review follows... 'Historic tale set in the last quarter of the 18th century, stars Clive Brook as a doctor who is brought to the royal palace to attend the King of Denmark, he becomes a favorite of the queen and uses his growing powers to bring about reforms, this upsets most of the royal court, quiet good.' It was made at, but not by Ealing Studios.
