With "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.
