Edwina Mountbatten film starring Cate Blanchett is cancelled

Quote:
AT the time it was one of the most famous and glamorous marriages in the country.

But Hollywood producers have found telling the story of Romsey’s Lord and Lady Mountbatten’s relationship too controversial and have pulled out of making a movie based on the Hampshire couple’s time during the last days of the British Empire in India.

I am extremely disappointed that the film has been cancelled. I was looking forward to it very much. Cate Blanchett would have been wonderful as Edwina, and I would have liked to see Hugh Grant tackle Dickie. Clever writing and direction and acting could have overcome the lack of on-screen kissing and declarations of love between Edwina and Jawahar.

I've read on MSN Cinema that accordin to Ok Magasine, Kate Beckinsale could be Princess Margaret in a movie called "The Princess And The Gangster".
A movie about the alleged affair between the princess and the actor/gangster John Bindon.

"Painting Her Majesty The Queen" - Rolf Harris, BBC 2006

I just watched the BBC documentary on Rolf Harris' portrait of the Queen. I remember watching this same doco on the ABC a couple of years ago and being astounded when the Queen said "nope" and "yep" to Harris. It's a fascinating interview and really the most personal one that I've seen. I highly recommend it. He's amazingly chatty, so is the Queen for that matter.

For those who are interested you can watch the documentary on YouTube, in several parts.

It also contains interviews with people who have painted other portraits of the Queen.

I hope I'm not posting this in the wrong place. I searched but couldn't find another thread for this particular documentary.

Here is the website for the TV series.

Yes I have seen it, but I prefer the actors who portray Victoria and Albert in Edward the 7th ( known as Edward the King here in the US).
But V& A is a wonderful movie too.

The Queen- TLC Docudrama

An ad came on TV tonight for a 2 hour docudrama about the life and reign of QE2 to air on TLC sometime in Feb.
But I do not think it is new, it is the same title and the actors looked similar to a 4 part BBC docudrama I have on DVD that aired in the UK 2 years ago.
I think this is the US premiere of that. Could be different program though so worth a heads-up!

Thank you roseroyal for the heads up. I will make sure I set my TV to record it.
It should be interesting to watch as Queen Elizabeth seems to be a fascinating person.

You are welcome. Wish I could remember the date of the program. Seems to me it is sometime in the middle of the month.

Monarchy: Royal Family at Work

PBS is showing an older documentary about the British Royal Family at work - it's fascimating. I know it's not being shown everywhere, but if it's here in HI, it's on the mainland as well.

I wasn't sure where to put this post, couldn't see discussion about this excellent documentary series elsewhere - mods please move to better place.

Everyone else: don't miss it!

One of the best documentaries on the British family I can think of is "Elizabeth R" made in 1992 for the 40th anniversary of Her Majesty's ascention. The amount you hear off the record is astounding, especially from Her Majesty. In this documentary we hear her admit to having a diary but not as detailed as Queen Victoria's. Individual clips of this documentary can be found on YouTube, but I do not know how to upload videos or if there are any legal complications, all I know is that the person who posts them is called "reelsarency" and I am eternally grateful to whoever they are for these gems of royal life. It is an amazing documentary.
