Wonderful Welles, great Shakespeare

Chimes at Midnight was Welles' third Shakespeare. I think it's his best. It is a masterful melange of Henry IV, Henry V, Richard II, and a touch of Merry Wives. It is chock-full of brilliant acting (Gielgud, Jeanne Moureau, Margaret Rutherford, Ralph Richardson, and Welles).
