Bess becomes embroiled in the politics of the court when she falls in love with a navy admiral, Thomas Seymour, who is subsequently betrothed to her stepmother. Upon Catherine's death, Seymour proclaims his love for Bess and is consequently accused of seducing her. 'Young Bess' is a typical 1950s MGM historical melodrama, replete with lavish costumes, an emotional score and meticulous recreation of the 16th century English setting
