CGiii Comment

It's a comedy about a man who murdered several of his wives...possibly, the first spoof ever made.

Laughton won the Oscar for his bizarre portrayal of the ego-centric king...literally, making him a laughing-stock.

Simply, it's utterly terrible.

This movie tells the story of King Henry VIII and the last five of his six wives. Set almost entirely within the royal castle, it begins just before the death of his second wife (Anne Boleyn) and ends just after his sixth wedding (to Catherine or Katherine Parr).
