Comment: Re: SHK 15.1977 Henry V
"As for the Dauphin's line to the constable about his stars falling
tomorrow as a reference to the constable's doubles falling in battle, I
am also unconvinced."
Olivier gave those lines an interesting twist in his film. The
Constable's armour had stars on the breast-plate. Our last sight of them
was on Pistol, who had clearly stolen the breastplate on the
battlefield. " Fallen " indeed.
