Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 05/11/1990
"...A 150-minute guilty pleasure..."
New York Times - 10/24/2006
"[Barrymore] is a sarcastic and worldly Louis XV, while the great character actor Joseph Schildkraut plays the perfidious Duke d'Orleans."

Product Description:

With a seven-figure budget and veteran director W.S. Van Dyke at the helm, MARIE ANTOINETTE is one of the most opulent period dramas produced in the golden era of Hollywood. The film chronicles the life of the 18th-century queen, following her emotional transformation from childhood as a young Austrian princess to her last days in the court of Louis XVI before the French Revolution. Led by the talents of Norma Shearer as Marie, John Barrymore as Louis XVI, and Tyrone Power as Marie's childhood friend and aspiring lover, Count Axel de Fersen, the film exposes the power plays and chicaneries of the French court, painting the Duke d'Orleans as the villainous source of Marie's public relations tragedy. With the extravagance of the court matched vociferously by the extravagance of the production, a romantic score by Henry Stothart, and a strong performance from Shearer, MARIE ANTOINETTE is a quality period drama.

Description by Warner Home Video:

Marie Antoinette
Her eyes shine as brightly as the diamonds at her slender throat or as the countless candles that turn the Palace of Versailles into a light-drenched fantasy world. She is Marie Antoinette, Queen of France: beautiful, imperious, headstrong...and doomed.
With an opulence exemplifying Hollywood's Golden Era at its most glamorous, the grandeur and revolutionary fervor of 18th-century France sweeps across the screen in this nominee for 4 Academy Awards'.* Elegant Best Actress Oscar' nominee Norma Shearer stars in the decades-spanning title role, Tyrone Power plays her ardent beloved, John Barrymore is crafty Louis XV and debuting Robert Morley portrays timid Louis XVI. From ballroom to boudoir to guillotine, Marie Antoinette is regal romantic adventure.

Plot Synopsis:

This is an opulent production of the life of the 18th-century French queen whose most lasting contribution to history has been a supercilious remark about baked goods. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Actress--Norma Shearer.
