Plot Summary

Queen Elizabeth is running this show. The men in her court should be thinking about how to add to the glory of the Elizabethan Age and how to foil those pesky Spanish who got far too much influence in England when her older sister Mary was on the throne after their father Henry VIII was succeeded by their sickly half brother. Elizabeth thinks Michael Ingolby can do great things. Michael is mostly thinking about one of Elizabeth's ladies in waiting, Cynthia. Soon his mind is on survival when Elizabeth sends him on a voyage to Spain. Written by Dale O'Connor

Trivia It was while screening this film that agent Myron Selznick saw Vivien Leigh and decided that she was Scarlett O'Hara. Coincidentally, she was in Hollywood to accompany her lover and future husband, Laurence Olivier who was making Wuthering Heights (1939) and Selznick brought her down to the Gone with the Wind (1939) set, the Burning of Atlanta and introduced her to his brother David O. Selznick as his new Scarlett O'Hara. See more »

Quotes Spanish Ambassador: If your majesty will not hear words, we must come to cannon and see if you will hear them.
Queen Elizabeth I of England: If you use threats of that kind, I will chase you out of my kingdom.
Spanish Ambassador: But, your grace. You MUST listen.
Queen Elizabeth I of England: Must? Little man, little man, must is NOT a word to use to princes. Our council shall confer with you. Meanwhile, go home and be quiet!
