Synopsis:
The most revered actor of the 20th Century stars in King Lear, Shakespeare's greatest tragedy. Laurence Olivier gives an outstanding performance, portraying drama's most celebrated octogenarian with spirit and pathos. This internationally acclaimed production boasts Olivier in his first appearance in a Shakespeare play filmed exclusively for television. King Lear is a violent story about family strife, crumbling power and divided loyalty, culminating in madness. Its themes are as pertinent today as when the play was written some 400 years ago.
