Storyline

A dramatization of Lady Jane Grey's short life, from her forced marriage (which she resisted) to her brief reign as monarch of England and finally to her beheading. The film portrays her as an innocent set up for the slaughter while the scheming courtiers and pretenders to the throne barely pay her mind, as they stab each other in the back in their attempts to gain power and influence. Written by Alfred Jingle

25 November 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With all the talk of no history education in the schools in the United States, this film can be used to whet the appetite. When some of us older viewers will remember that great novels were turned into Classic Comics to teach the lazy about great written works, the movie studios were churning out historic films, frequently firming some biographies with fictional text. This film is excellent. For those parents who want to give a "sense of history to their children" they should rent or look for the following movies: YOUNG TOM EDISON, EDISON, THE MAN; ELEANOR, FIRST LADY OF THE WORLD; WILSON; ABE LINCOLN IN ILLINOIS; JUAREZ; SUEZ; DISRAELI; PANCHO VILLA; STANLEY AND LIVINGSTON; DR. EHRLICH'S MAGIC BULLET; HOUSE OF ROTHSCHILD; CARDINAL RICHELIEU; THE STORY OF LOUIS PASTEUR and TRUMAN as well as documentary films like THE GUNS OF AUGUST. TUDOR ROSE is a must see, the viewer should program IMDb to advise when these films are on television.
