Shown Thursday night on NBC, it was a beautifully produced, meticulously performed series of vignettes about the great British queen from her accession as a young girl to widowed old age. Perhaps the play suffered from the necessity of chopping it into bits- to follow the rigid TV commercial form. Or perhaps and this 'is most likely the vital elements missing were Miss Hayes and Vincent Price, who originally played Prince Albert. Miss Harris, certainly a most skillful actress, never really be came Queen Victoria. She was all actress as a naive young girl, a jealous wife and a sorrowing widow, with skillful make-up aging from 18 to 78 over 90 minutes. She never was convincing as the great imperious queen, not even in the now famous quarrel with her husband. Nevertheless, it was a rewarding and eye-filling broadcast. James Donald looked handsome and performed competently as Albert. But the TV version of contemporary classic proved again that it is almost impossible to remake satisfactorily a play which a great performer has made his own property. Comparison is inevitable, and inevitably the original stars get the best of it.
