Anna Boleyn (1920)
Description: Anne Boleyn(Henny Porten) is coveted by King Henry VIII (Emil Jannings) when he tires of Queen Katherine. The ruler desires an heir to the throne, and Katherine has not provided one. Henry goes against the wishes of the pope, divorces Katherine, and forms the Church of England. Sir Henry Norris (Paul Hartmann) is her jealous boyfriend who leaves when he suspects Anne and the King of having an affair. A spectacular crowd scene is the marriage of Anne and Henry at the Cathedral and the sumptuous festivities that followed. Henry's attentions turn to Lady Seymour after Anne bears the child that would be Queen Elizabeth. Boleyn is tortured and confesses to infidelity before being sentenced to death by the pompous monarch.~ Dan Pavlides, All Movie Guide
