EDWARD ON EDWARD* (All-Media World-Wide Release 1996)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì 

Edward on Edward—exceptionally thorough documentary— tells about King George VI older brother King Edward VII who later was made Duke of Windsor after he abdicated the throne for love of a woman that was not part of the royal designation to marry. This film is very well done, but complicated. The documentation is lovely work as presented by King George VI’s grandson, Prince Edward Earl of Wessex. Exceptionally interesting, extremely well-organized, the documentary raises and answers many questions about love, leadership, obligation, loyalty, courage, life, and duty. This film becomes an excellent source of after viewing discussion, a terrific history lesson, and deserves a permanent place in the home video library. Wonderful archival footage.
