Storyline

Ana, the Princess of Eboli, wears a black patch over her right eye, where she was blinded as a youth when fighting a duel in defense of her king, the despotic Philip. Thereafter she and the monarch were close friends, although his passion for her was never consummated. She marries one of Philip's ministers, bore him a son, and soon became a widow. Now Philip calls upon her to assist in coaching a commoner, Antonio Perez, for the office of first secretary to the crown.The result is more than Philip bargained for as Ana and Antonio become lovers and create a scandal in court, always the scene of perpetual intrigue. Philip has Antonio arrested on a drummed-up charge of murder, and when Ana refuses to leave Madrid, she too is arrested. After spending time in jail, she is transferred to her home and held in check. Antonio escapes and makes his way to Ana, who persuades him to leave the country and take her son. Written by alfiehitchie

a longing to view Schofield as King Philip II of Spain.
13 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

It is sad, sad that there is, so far as I know, no way of seeing this great, great actor of enormous distinction and individuality making his debut in films about half a century ago in THAT LADY.

Regardless of its original reception at the box office I am convinced that we would be overwhelmed by the charisma and monumental personality of Mr. Schofield's portrayal of one of the most remarkable European kings that ever reigned.

His characterization of King Lear in Peter Brooke's film of Shakespeare's tragedy is fundamentally magnificent and hardly likely ever to be surpassed. How lovely it would be compare and contrast the two royal portraits and what a treat for generations of great acting fans yet to come.
