Pristine Blu ray of classic Shakespeare film.,
This review is from: Henry V [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Henry V [Blu-ray] 
This classic 1945 Shakespeare film with Laurence Olivier as the inspirational monarch is very much of its time, and strikes probably a unique balance between a stage production and a film, I cannot imagine anything like this being produced today.
It is many years since I last viewed this film and I was surprised how well it had aged, and how much more I enjoyed it.
There are welcome reminders of actors of the past, Robert Newton, Felix Aylmer, George Robey, Valentine Dyal, Robert Helpman and boyhood appearances from Anthony Newley and George Cole. Princess Katherine is played by Renee Asherson looking very like a young Dorothy Tutin.
Fine acting, a good film score by William Walton and some stunning Technicolor cinematography superbly transferred to Blu ray make this a must have release.
