Of course, let us not forget the 1969 film, "Anne of the Thousand Days," based on Maxwell Anderson`s 1948 play. I saw the film on video a few years ago after seeing it many years beforehand, and was surprised to see how good it was. Richard Burton avoided his usual scenery-chewing (although he lost the Oscar to John Wayne) and Genevieve Bujold was surprisingly effective as the title character (she also lost the Oscar to Glenda Jackson.) The film was also nominated, but lost to "Midnight Cowboy."

This was one of the last films produced by Hal Wallis, who helmed a wide range of films from "Casablanca" to "Becket" to most of Elvis`s godawful flicks.
