Elizabeth I’s Tilbury Speech on film

Today is the anniversary of Queen Elizabeth I's rousing speech to the troops at Tilbury Fort on 9th August 1588. While we don't have Elizabeth I herself on film, it's a speech that has featured in many movies and TV series. You can read the various versions we have of the original Tilbury speech in my article from 2015 - click here - but here are a few famous depictions of that day in 1588.
