Anne of Hollywood, by Carol Wolper

Well adapted take off on Anne Boleyn's story. In this adaptation, Henry Tudor is the head of a major studio, Anne and Mary are establishment party girls, Theresa Cromwell is a scheming executive who can't force Anne into her own plans, and Jane Seymore is a vapid San Fransisco socialite.
Except for beheadings, this was pretty faithful to history- and maybe in Hollywood, divorce after an airtight prenup feels like a beheading?
Fun, but not what I hoped for.
