Synopsis:
When Queen Elizabeth the Second was crowned on June 2nd, 1953, many of Britain's leading cinematic artists were commissioned to create this glorious record of the event. Narrated by Laurence Olivier, it conveys the sights and sounds, the pomp and pageantry, the very spirit of that unforgettable day. Oscar-nominated and BAFTA-winning, 'A Queen is Crowned' is one of the greatest films of an historical event ever made. Also included in this commemorative set is 'Palaces of a Queen' - a 1966 documentary touring the six royal palaces: Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, St. James's Palace, Hampton Court, Kensington Palace and Holyrood House.
Narrated by Michael Redgrave and with a resounding score arranged and conducted by Malcolm Sargent, this documentary is a worthy companion piece to 'A Queen is Crowned'.
