Marie Antoinette
This historical drama focuses on the Austrian princess who became a queen (Norma Shearer) via marriage to the future King of France, Louis XVI (Robert Morley). When her marriage proves loveless, she begins an affair with a Swedish count (Tyrone Power), who stays with her until she becomes queen--upon the death of Louis XV (John Barrymore). Meanwhile, unhappy revolutionaries led by the Duke of Orleans (Jose Schildkraut) plan to overthrow the government and when they succeed, the King and Queen land in prison. The Swedish nobleman then returns, hatching a plan to save her life.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[Norma Shearer is] enough to make this dodgy, obese slab of prestige moviemaking turn into something sparkling and engaging."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Lavish in its textures, weird in its delivery, "Marie Antoinette" is a psychedelic swirl of girliness and history."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"Subtleties of history and psychology are glossed over in deference to the movie's teenybopper sensibilities."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
