Synopsis of Mary of Scotland

A historical movie, dealing with the life of Mary of Scotland. With some typical Hollywood liberties with historical fact. But with excellent performances all around.

Review of Mary of Scotland

I’m not a big fan of Hollywood’s historical movies.  They tend to take large liberties with historical fact to tell their stories. Some will accuse Mary of Scotland of this as well. But the essential facts are there. As well as wonderful to performances all around.  Especially by:

  • Katherine Hepburn as the titular  Mary of Scotland
  • Fredric March as the man who truly loves her
  • John Carradine as her only friend
  • Florence Eldridge as the false friend Queen Elizabeth.

It’s not a happy movie by any stretch. But it’s a wonderful movie with riveting performances by everyone. It’s highly recommended.
