Comment: Re: SHK 13.2473 Comparison of Henry V Films
There is another Henry V on film, and in my opinion it might very well
be the most intriguing of all -- CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT, the Orson Welles'
reprise of IV-V, which I think had a strong influence on Branagh --
notably the charnel house Agincourt sequence -- and stands as a
remarkable work in its own right. I presume it has been discussed
before here, although I haven't followed any of the threads.
