Rio (Lynne) This is on Turner Classic Movies 8/28.
England's King Henry II appoints his best friend Archbishop of Canterbury then turns on him. I haven't seen it, but the DVR is set.

Sharon (sharonk) | 121 comments It is hard to utterly dismiss any film with both Richard Burton and Peter O'Toole in it. But when it comes to historical accuracy, it is pretty much a joke. So enjoy it for the "scenery" but don't watch it to learn what really happened. Sharon

Rio (Lynne) The other two I just watched from NetFlix was "Queen Margot" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110963/ and "Mad Love" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0270480/. I enjoyed both.

Rio - I have the Margot de Valois book by Alexander Dumas. After I read it, I will have to watch the movie.

Alexandria - Too bad about Netflix Canada, but they will probably get more stuff quickly.
