WATCH THE TRAILER
Reportedly one of Stanley Kubrick’s favourite films, Olivier’s film begins in the Globe Theatre before gradually breaking out into a gorgeous Technicolor rendering of Shakespeare’s historical play. It was intended as a morale booster for a Britain embroiled in WWII and garnered Olivier an honorary Academy Award.
