I was about to watch 'The Private Life of Henry VIII' when a titolo card appeared in the first frame explaining that Katherine of Aragon does not appear in the film because 'her story is of no particular interest'!
I refused to watch the film after that. The nerve to deem Katherine of Aragon uninteresting! She was a fascinating woman - strong, kind, respected, brave. And those are just some words to describe how great she is!
To deem Katherine's story in such a way is just disrespectful. Her story was and is just as interesting as Anne Boleyn's o Catherine Parr's. Her story often doesn't get the attention it deserves.
Queen Katherine of Aragon was a great woman, and her story is of interest, and to dismiss her life in such a way is shameful.
I know it's a film, but that one frame just made me angry. Katherine was an incredible woman who deserves admiration and respect, and I think to deem her story unworthy of attention is disrespectful to her memory.
