Balcony Scene

Here is a scene from the 1989 television film The French Revolution, starring Jane Seymour as Marie-Antoinette. It depicts the moment when the Queen stood on the balcony and faced the mob on the night of October 6, 1789 at Versailles. It is much more accurate than the manner in which the incident was handled in the Coppola film. (Via Trianon de la Reina) Share
