Lady Godiva ★½ 1955

The lovely O'Hara is wasted in the title role as a Saxon noblewoman married to Leofric (Nader). They're trying to stem Norman influence and Godiva vows to ride naked through the streets of Canterbury to prove the Saxon people's loyalty to King Edward (Franz). Cardboard costumer. Clint East-wood has a bit as a Saxon soldier. 89m/C VHS . Maureen O'Hara, George Nader, Eduard Franz, Leslie Bradley, Victor McLaglen, Torin Thatcher, Rex Reason; D: Arthur Lubin; W: Oscar Brodney, Harry Ruskin; C: Carl Guthrie.
