Henry V
Laurence OlivierWilliam Shakespeare's play depicting the King of England leading his army to win at Agincourt.
Richard III
Laurence OlivierWith RICHARD III, director, producer, and star Laurence Olivier (Hamlet) brings Shakespeare's masterpiece of Machiavellian villainy to mesmerizing cinematic life. Olivier is diabolically captivating as Richard, Duke of Gloucester, who, through a set of murderous machinations, steals the crown from his brother Edward. The supporting cast—including Ralph Richardson (Fallen Idol), John Gielgud (Arthur), and Claire Bloom (The Spy Who Came in from the Cold)—is just as impressive. Filmed in VistaVision and Technicolor, RICHARD III is one of the most visually inspired of all big-screen Bard adaptations.
Roman PolanskiAn 11th-century Scottish general's wife drives him to murder in Shakespeare's tragedy.

Richard III
Richard LoncraineDirector Richard Loncraine (The Missionary) gives us a cinematic version of Ian McKellen's heralded 1990 National Theatre stage performance as the vile but fascinating Richard III (1995). Updating Shakespeare's most entertaining history play to the 1930s, the filmmakers offer a slick-haired fascist Richard, disturbingly recognizable as one of our ambitious own, coldly, pleasurably eliminating his enemies and scooping up the widow (Kristin Scott Thomas) of one victim even as she's burying him. Also starring Annette Bening, Jim Broadbent, Robert Downey, Jr., Nigel Hawthorne, John Wood, and a redoubtable pair of Downton-ites, Maggie Smith and Jim Carter.
