Box office

The film was hugely successful on its original release. It made Alexander Korda a premier figure in the British film industry at the time; United Artists consequently signed Korda for 16 films. It also advanced the careers of Charles Laughton, Robert Donat, and Merle Oberon, it was her first major film role. Laughton would later reprise the same role in 1953 in the film “Young Bess”, opposite Jean Simmons as his daughter, Elizabeth.  It was the 12th most successful film at the US box office in 1933. The film premiered to record-breaking crowds at New York's Radio City Music Hall and London's Leicester Square Theatre one week later. It earned Ł500,000 on its first release.


Synopsis:  The film takes place 20 years into King Henry's rule. In May 1536, immediately following the execution of his second wife, Anne Boleyn (Merle Oberon), King Henry VIII (Charles Laughton) marries Jane Seymour (Wendy Barrie), who dies in childbirth eighteen months later. He then weds a German princess, Anne of Cleves (played by Laughton's real-life wife Elsa Lanchester). This marriage ends in divorce when Anne deliberately makes herself unattractive so she can be free to marry her sweetheart…..
