Thoughtful and complex, Laurence Olivier delivers one of his greatest Shakespearean performances as Hamlet. He shows how the prince falls apart under the burden of his thoughts and inability to accept his mother's marriage to his uncle. Olivier's brilliant monologues bring out all the master's irony and wit.
