Legendary Shakespearean, Laurence Olivier delivers one of the screen's greatest adaptations of the Bard and an iconic performance as his most notorious villain in this award-winning version of Richard III. It is the end of the 15th century, and soon after Edward VI has been crowned King, his brother Richard starts plotting to obtain the throne. Manipulating, misleading and murdering all who stand between him and the crown, Richard becomes King, but must eventually face his enemies on the battlefield.
