Disc 1: ANNE OF THE THOUSAND DAYS
Disc 2: MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS
Performers, Cast and Crew:
ANNE OF THE THOUSAND DAYS: This lavish costume drama with rich performances to match tells of King Henry VIII's infatuation with eighteen-year-old Anne Boleyn. For her hand, the king defied the Vatican, destroyed a ruling caste, and established the church of England in order to obtain a divorce from his wife. Burton is appropriately swaggering and Bujold more than worthy of her king's notice. Academy Award Nominations: 10, including Best Picture, Best Actress--Genevieve Bujold, Best Actor--Richard Burton, Best (Adapted) Screenplay. Academy Awards: Best Costume Design.
MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS: Political intrigue, strong women, weak men, and countless conspiracies fuel this beautifully staged--though not completely accurate--historical drama about the life of "Fiery" Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots (Vanessa Redgrave). In the wake of the Protestant Reformation, Mary Stuart becomes enmeshed in a labyrinthine power struggle to determine the fate of the British throne. Heads roll and dynasties crumble when Mary, her unctuous husband Lord Darnley (Timothy Dalton), her jealous half-brother James Stuart (McGoohan), Scotland's rebellious nobility, the Church of England, the Pope, and England's "Virgin Queen" Elizabeth I (Glenda Jackson) all vie for control of the crown.

Excellent!! Richard Burton and Genevieve Bujold were at the pick of their careers. Storyline Cinematography and Directing were superb following the historical timeline.
