TWELVE OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCES FROM THE 20TH CENTURY'S MOST REVERED ACTOR
The recipient of numerous awards during his lifetime, Laurence Olivier is one of the most revered actors of the 20th Century. Both his mastery of the craft and his enduring adaptations of classical works are aptly showcased in this gorgeous centenary celebration box set. Each interpretation is also enhanced by Olivier's collaboration with a wealth of screen talent including Joan Plowright, Anthony Nicholls, Michael Jayston, Denis Lawson, Denis Quilley, Constance Cummings, Cedric Hardwicke, Ralph Richardson, Greta Scacchi, Malcolm McDowell, Robert Wagner, Donald Pleasance and John Gielgud.
Olivier's visionary version of Shakespeare's play was nominated for three Oscars and won him an Honorary Award for his outstanding achivement as actor, producer and director.
This award-winning adaptation of Shakespeare's play secured Olivier a BAFTA award for Best British Actor along with a further Oscar nomination.
Michael Elliott's production of misplaced trust, filial ingratitude, envy and lust for power set the benchmark for all other adaptations of this sad tale.
