ABOUT THE FILMS

While you are here checking out the list of films included in The Tudors on Film and Television, enjoy the slideshow of serious films covered in the book. For more slideshows, see the TudorsOnFilm Blog page (portraits of the Tudors) and the Contact TudorsOnFilm page (some not-so-serious films covered in the book).


Following is a list of films included in The Tudors on Film and Television plus new films that have appeared since completion of the book. The list also will include any hitherto undiscovered films made through the end of 2011 that may come to light. All film titles will link to the International Movie Database (IMDB) wherever possible or to other sources where no IMDB entry exists. Films that are commercially available will have a link to the Blu-Ray, DVD (Region 1 and Region 2), VHS, or other source (e.g., click 'Blu-Ray'). Any films not in the book will be marked 'NEW' and will have a link to a new online essay. Any film in the book for which there is updated information will be marked "UPDATED" and will have a link to the update. Links to pertinent interviews, reviews, and film-specific websites also will be posted. When compiling the book, the authors included only representative examples of operas dealing with the Tudors (Gaetana Donnizetti's Anna Bolena, Maria Stuarda, and Roberto Devereux), but eventually all filmed versions will be discussed here.
