Elizabethan Week Day Two: Elizabeth on Film

Welcome to Elizabethan Week, Day Two!  I am celebrating my favorite historical era all week to mark the release of my first Ekizabethan Mystery, Murder at Hatfield House!!!  (Out today!  See it here on Amazon...)  Elizabeth here is very happy about it. :)

Today we're going to take a look at various actresses who have taken on the Herculean task of embodying the queen on film.  There are a LOT of them, so let's get started!

 Elizabeth Number One:  Cate Blanchett (the younger and the older...)

 Helen Mirren

 Anne-Marie Duff

 Glenda Jackson

 Bette Davis

 Flora Robson

Judy Dench

Who is your favorite Elizabeth????  (when I'm working on the mystery series, since it's set in the late 1550s, I see Cate Blanchett in my mind most of the time...)
