Through the movie John and everyone else keeps referring to Guilford as the last of three sons, true Guilford was the youngest son but he and four other brothers made it past infancy, they should be referring to Guilford as the fifth son, not the third. See more »

Although it has been more than a decade since I saw Lady Jane, I remember that it moved me greatly. The ambiance and characters are fully developed. Helen Bonham Carter was quite young, perfect for the role, and turned out to be quite a revelation. I saw the film in Madrid. I'll never forget the sight of a middle aged Spaniard (male) in the audience weeping at the conclusion. (The Spanish nobility were the "bad guys" of this drama).
