8 thoughts on “TBT: Elizabeth R (1971)

  1. Elizabeth R is my happy place and the benchmark for all other Elizabeth I dramas. Imho only Helen Mirren’s is a very close second.

    1. In my opinion the Shekhar Kapur movies are brainless, but Cate Blanchett is Glenda Jackson’s only peer among the Elizabeth actresses, purely because she’s the only one who can match her Big Dick Energy.

      I’ve seen objectively superior productions that fall down simply because their Elizabeth does not radiate that intense, magnetic energy the way Glenda and Cate did.
