When Knighthood Was in Flower (Paramount, 1922)

Thursday, March 29 (7:30 p.m.)
When Knighthood Was in Flower (Paramount, 1922)
Marion Davies stars as Mary Tudor, sister of King Henry VIII, whom the King aims to use for political gain by offering her hand in marriage to King Louis XII of France. For period authenticity, no expense was spared on the production’s costumes, armor and tapestries or on Joseph Urban’s huge, lavish sets. This was the breakout role that made Davies a star. Live musical accompaniment will be provided by Ben Model. 115 min.
