TBT: Mary of Scotland (1936)


I’ve given a capsule review of this, the earliest full movie by Hollywood about my favorite 16th-century queen, but Mary of Scotland (1936) deserves a deeper dive into the costumes designed by legendary Walter Plunkett. While definitely a 1930s aesthetic for the 1560s period, this film’s costumes are gorgeous and evocative of Mary Queen of Scots’ character (more so than certain recent flicks, IMNSHO).

    Katherine Hepburn is always worth watching, otherwise this movie is unhistorical twaddle. The costumes on the other hand are pretty good, if much too slimline.
