Product Details

The late Sir Laurence Olivier's final major screen role, five years before his death in 1989, is one of his most legendary and best performances. It equals every other Shakespearean role that he did in greatness. He also adapted the play for the screen and produced it (though he took no credit for that). How appropriate that the final major screen role of the greatest Shakespearean actor of all time, Kenneth Branagh close behind, should be a Shakespeare production. A fitting end to a long and illustrious career. As always, Olivier is backed by a strong supporting cast, including Diana Rigg as Regan, John Hurt as the Fool, Brian Cox as the Duke Of Albany and Esmond Knight. Highly recommended for English classes.
