NINE DAYS A QUEEN, a fictionalized life of Lady Jane Grey, was directed by Robert Stevenson, who co-wrote the screenplay with Miles Malleson. The distinguished cast included many veterans of Shakespeare on the British stage, among them Nova Pilbeam, Cedric Hardwicke, and John Mills.
British movie costume sketches of this era are extremely uncommon.
