Love This Movie!
3 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is my favorite by far of all the dramatizations of the Edward VIII-Wallis Simpson story. My VHS tape must be nearly worn out – I hope they will put it on DVD in the USA soon.

Some scenes and dialogue have been depicted/quoted directly from Wallis and Edward: Letters 1931-1937, edited by Michael Bloch. The 1930s costumes, hair, makeup, and sets are well done, very period-authentic. There are also some cute touches, such as a scene round the piano with a group of the Prince of Wales' guests singing "A Shanty in Old Shanty Town" – a popular song of the day, and one that contains the lyric "I would give up a palace if I were a king…." I wouldn't mind if Mr. Andrews was a little more dashing and boyish as the Prince of Wales, but overall a good production.
