||"The Virgin Queen" NSS: 55/302
Linen backed and in excellent condition. The poster definately shows the queen Betty Davis's eyes in the lower left of this original movie poster from 1955.
The movie detailed the tragic relationship of the elderly Queen and her youthful lover, who was too hot-headed and too ambitious. It ends with Essex's rebellion of 1601, and his execution which (one can see) destroys the Queen as well. There was plenty of tension in that film, and one of the joys of it is watching how from the start every character knows how to play Essex's headstrong behavior against him. He literally destroys himself, taking his monarch with him.
