    Plot Summary
    In 11th-century England, King Edward the Confessor wants saxon Lord Leofric
    to marry a despised Norman woman, and has him jailed when he refuses.
    In jail, he meets Godiva, the sheriff's daughter, and soon they are wed.
    The times are turbulent and Godiva proves a militant bride; unhistorically,
    unrest between the Anglo-Saxon populace and the increasingly
    influential Norman French lead to her famous ride.

  • Lady Godiva of Coventry is an American historical film,
    directed by Arthur Lubin and released in 1955.
    It starred Maureen O'Hara in the title role.


    Lots of Duke regulars in this, forgettable load of nonsense!!
    Directed by Arthur Lubin, who directed 4 early Duke Films
    Maureen, less than revealing!!!!,
    If it had been made today, who knows!!!
    Victor McLaglen, Grant Withers, Arthur Shields
    and Henry 'Scar' Brandon.
    are at least some interest to Duke fans

    Equally so, is a young Clint Eastwood un-credited as a Saxon!!!
    Once again, if it was made today,
    Clint would have shot everybody in Coventry.
    Make my day..Saxon!

  • :wink_smile:

    Lady Godiva did exist, but she was paraded naked in Coventry as shown in the movie or is it a legend?

    This film allowed Maureen to meet a whole new beginning, Clint Eastwood, who has a small role!

    a short video

    and the Original trailer

    Good reading!

    Unconditional's Maureen O'Hara !
    French-English translation: poor !!!
