One can pick plenty of bones with Laurence Olivier's direction of the Shakespeare play, but this 1945 film is still a powerful production from many standpoints, including Olivier's performance and his detailed re-creation of what a play at the Globe in Shakespeare's day might have been like. As cinema this isn't within hailing distance of any of Orson Welles's Shakespeare films, but it's certainly Shakespeare. With Robert Newton, Leslie Banks, and Ernest Thesiger. 137 min.
