Henry V. 1944. Great Britain. Directed by Laurence Olivier
These notes accompany the screenings of Laurence Olivier’s Henry V on August 10, 11, and 12 in Theater 3.
I can’t recall an image of an auteur in action that is as stirringly visceral, dynamic, and, frankly, sexy, as Laurence Olivier’s Prince Hal in tights, rousing his army at Agincourt. (Mom, I don’t want to be cowboy or a policeman. I want to grow up to be an auteur!)
