Chimes at Midnight

I watched Chimes at Midnight (1965), the ‘Falstaff’ vehicle for Orson Welles’ enormous ego – and body. It’s rubbish. A complete waste of AU$27.18, as far as I am concerned.

But I bought it really for my friend Andrew: and he’ll prolly enjoy it again.

The career of Shakespeare's Sir John Falstaff as roistering companion to young Prince Hal, circa 1400-1413.

Orson Welles, Jeanne Moreau, Margaret Rutherford, John Gielgud
