Subject:     Colley Cibber/ Richard III

 

Al Magary asks if modern productions use the Colley Cibber additions that became standard in older productions.  Laurence Olivier’s film does use the “Off with his head” line, though I don’t know if it uses others (it does incorporate lines and bits of scenes from the Henry VI plays).
