Richard III 1955 Film

The Guardian13 December 1955"A bold and successful achievement""Olivier has made a superbly dramatic film, in which by variations of tempo, by superb acting on the part of the awe-inspiring cast, and by a wonderful knack of indicating the side-shows while maintaining the main theme of Richard's own drama, he has cheated the clock. His long film never, or hardly ever, seems long.""None of his cast - including John Gielgud (Clarence) and Ralph Richardson (Buckingham) - does less than very well. Claire Bloom's Lady Anne is far above her usual level, while the Hastings of Alec Clunes is more memorable still.""The final word, however, must be that this is a superb and bold achievement, most honourable to Shakespeare and to the actor-producer-director, something of a cinematographic miracle."
