Next up for CMNYK is The Private Life of Henry VIII (1933) starring Charles Laughton, Robert Donat and Merle Oberon, directed by Alexander Korda. This is a very exciting event for us as we screen Korda’s brilliant masterpiece, starring one of the greatest casts of all time, headed by the inimitable Charles Laughton in his most legendary role. You’ve seen hunks like Eric Bana, Damian Lewis and Jonathan Rhys Meyers play Henry VIII, now see the best actor (not just in skill, but in appearance) to ever fill the role in this comic take on the life and loves of the famously fickle monarch. This is the first of several films we’ll be screening starring the masterful Laughton, and probably the best. This film also features appearances from Academy Award winner, and CMNYK alum, Robert Donat (The 39 Steps) as well as Merle Oberon as Anne Boleyn. Don’t miss it!
