So you have to like “classic” film and be able to deal with the hand-staple-forehead melodrama of it. And the costumes are definitely Hollywood-ized and 1930s-ized. But they are OVER THE TOP STUNNING. Froof. Lamé. Metallics. Jewels up the WAZOO. AND THE HAIR. THE WIGS ARE OUTSTANDING. Norma Shearer gives a surprisingly nuanced performance as the queen, and her acting during her imprisonment/execution is really touching.
