NEW 4K RESTORATION

Directed by Laurence Olivier

(1955) “A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse!” Olivier’s limping, humped, memorably-nosed Richard zestfully schemes his way to the top; seducing Claire Bloom over the corpse of the husband he’s killed; drowning John Gielgud in a barrel of wine; barking ‘Off with his head!’ re Ralph Richardson; while giving color commentary in minutes-long, single-taked, lip-smacking soliloquys delivered direct to the camera. 4K DCP restoration. Approx. 155 min.

Restoration funding provided by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and The Film Foundation. 

Restored by The Film Foundation and Janus Films, in association with the BFI National Archive, ITV Studios Global Entertainment Ltd., the Museum of Modern Art, and Romulus Films.
