A King's Story :
The Love Story of the Century
(Duke and Duchess of Windsor)
Duke of Windsor and Wally Simpson. This is perhaps the most poignant, intriguing and dramatic love story of modern times. In this fairy-tale romance, the Duke and Duchess themselves tell the story that rocked an empire and led to the historic abdication of 1936. More than just a documentary compilation, this prestige production is as emotionally involving as the finest motion picture. Narrated by Orson Welles, and including extensive interviews with the Duke of Windsor, it traces the Duke's life from childhood visits with his great-grandmother Queen Victoria to his abdication to marry the woman I love, capturing coronations, investitures, funerals, and other rarely seen footage from the Mediterranean cruise the Duke took with Mrs. Simpson immediately before his abdication and their historic marriage. The Film Buff Checklist gave this film a rare honor, their five-star rating.
