Sex & Nudity

  • None. Though Vanessa Redgrave's performance might be seen as slightly suggestive or indecent, there is no nudity or sex in this film.
  • The plot turns on attempting to end an arguably incestuous marriage.

Violence & Gore

  • There is a beheading, but it is not inside the frame.


  • There are two profane exclamations.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • No drugs.
  • Richard Rich (John Hurt) drinks at one point to steady his nerves.
  • There is drinking at Henry VIII's wedding.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The beheading is not shown onscreen. Nothing in this film is actually frightening.
  • The dialogue at the trial is in itself intense, but delivered in a very restrained manner (except for Leo McKern's performance as Thomas Cromwell).
  • Henry VIII (Robert Shaw) is subject to sudden fits of rage when contradicted.
