Henry V (1946 movie)

Henry V is a 1944 film adaptation of the William Shakespeare play Henry V; it was released in Los Angeles in 1946. It stars Laurence Olivier, who also directed. The screenplay was adapted by Dallas Bower[?], Alan Dent[?] and Olivier. With a memorable score from William Walton, it opens with a stage production of the play at the Globe theatre[?], only slipping gradually into cinematic style.

The movie won Olivier an Honorary Academy Award for his Outstanding achievement as actor, producer and director in bringing Henry V to the screen." That award should also be viewed in the broader context of his efforts to bring Shakespeare to the screen.

The film was nominated for four competitive Oscars
