Norma Shearer plays Marie Antoinette in the film of the 1938

In video (gives youtube.com) I've added to the bottom of the post you can see the final scene of the famous film of the 1938 Maria Antonietta, that of’execution of the ex Queen of France, played by Norma Shearer, nomination Oscar for the role.

Despite the undisputed value of the film and the talent of much of the cast (in the guise of heels there is Tyrone Power), in my humble opinion this particular sequence is excessively saccharine, a feature that can be seen its drama, but in my opinion just reflects the proud character of Marie Antoinette and clashes with the testimonies we have received, yes now that tell of a grief-stricken woman (and disease, because the woman was suffering from continuous uterine bleeding), but he determined to make his last walk with dignity land, firmness and courage.

In breve: The chronicles tell of Marie Antoinette by the look perhaps partly absent but always right, who does not cry and almost never (or never), He turns to look around.

in conclusion, the execution of Marie Antoinette, reportedly, It had to be somewhat different than the reconstruction made of it in this film (you see http://www.pilloledistoria.it/8333/storia-moderna/le-ultime-ore-di-maria-antonietta)

judge for yourself: good vision (Photo gives: wehadfacesthen.tumblr.com).
