Product Description:

Dozens of directors and hundreds of actors have tried to translate the glory of Shakespeare's writing from stage to film, but few, if any, have matched the success of the great Laurence Olivier. Often described, with perhaps a bit of hyperbole but plenty of good reason, as the 20th century's best actor, Olivier was the epitome of the classic British theater tradition, but he was also an adept and adaptable film star. The three movies included here--HENRY V (1944), HAMLET (1948), and RICHARD III (1955)--showcase his talents both behind and in front of the camera, remaining true to the original plays while exploring the possibilities of film. Criterion continues its tradition of remarkably complete and high-quality releases with this powerful trio, which despite the many other versions released in the intervening decades, remain definitive for many viewers.
