Elizabeth: The Golden Age So many shots, so very little time...This is one of my favorite scenes in this movie. Sir Walter Raleigh walks in on the Queen and they are alone and she is frantic over having to execute Mary, The Queen of Scots after finding out Mary was plotting to have Elizabeth killed. Says Walter R: "Since when were you ever afraid?" To which Elizabeth, very honestly says, while looking down, "I am always afraid." I think it is these moments of honesty in her character which makes her so human, while appearing so invincible to her people, that make her so entertaining to watch. I spent time on this one and could have continued for another week, but I want to move on. This was done in segments of time.
