The early life of Elizabeth I, from her childhood until her accession to the throne of England in 1558.
The second time that actor Charles Laughton played Henry VIII on film. The first film was The Private Life of Henry VIII. (1933) for which he won an Oscar.
I warn you, madam!
Ann Seymour: Who are you to warn me?
Young Bess: My mother's daughter!
In the film, young Bess is mostly referred to as "Princess Elizabeth". In history, Elizabeth was denied that title from the age of three. Her father Henry VIII declared his marriage to Anne Boleyn invalid before her execution for treason, thus Elizabeth was declared illegitimate and only to be called "Lady Elizabeth".
