    Olivier was criticized for cutting the play by almost half, but this is the best of the filmed versions. Although he was a little too old, he played the part well. 8 years 7 months ago

    Absolutely spectacular. The choreography for the sword fight was incredibly intense- even more so if you consider the era in which this was made.

    Now I'm off to see Burton's version.
