Among the most visually inspired of all big-screen adaptations of the Bard.

Director, producer, and star Laurence Olivier brings Shakespeare’s masterpiece of Machiavellian villainy to ravishing cinematic life (in Technicolor and VistaVision). Olivier is diabolically captivating as Richard, the Duke of Gloucester, who plots to steal the crown from his brother Edward IV. Olivier surrounds himself with a royal cast including Ralph Richardson, John Gielgud, and Claire Bloom. (158 mins., DCP)
