You cannot go wrong with this Shakespearean effort directed by and starring Laurence Olivier. This is the dark tale of ruthless Richard III (Olivier), murdering his way to his brother Edward's (Cedric Hardwicke) throne of England. Richard does become king but then must deal with Henry Tudor (Stanley Baker) and defend his realm at the Battle of Bosworth. At the battle field, Richard cries out, "A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!" just before he is struck down. Olivier was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award.
