Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - Mary Tudor (Marion Davies) falls for a jouster at a tournament, and quickly rises him through the ranks which rises the ire of his contemporaries. Ailing Louis XII is set to be Mary's husband, but she doesn't want to marry him. Forced to marry him anyway, he drops dead trying to dance with Mary. The jouster and Mary escape France and wed, returning to her brother Henry XIII who is forced to accept their union. This was really Marion's first great comedy role, and despite it being a costume drama it holds up well with some really shining moments from la Davies.
