Lady Godiva (1911)

Lady Godiva

Watch the Movie!

Based upon the Tennyson poem which itself is based upon the story of the Countess Godiva, an Anglo-Saxon lady who, according to legend, rode naked through the streets of Coventry after her husband promised that he would remit oppressive taxes on his tenants if she agreed to do so nude. The name "Peeping Tom" for a voyeur originates from later versions of this legend in which a man named Tom had watched the woman ride and was struck blind or dead.
