The Madness of King George

Great, but not extraordinary, film about the sudden mental illness bestowed upon King George III and his recovery. The cast is full of colorful and memorable characters and the set is marvelous; they all get an A. The plot, however, is not something that produces interesting for everybody and it didn't seem to be taken to its full potential. "The Madness of King George" is still something watchable and enjoyable to history buffs.
