Notes and Editorial Reviews

Stuart Burge’s film of John Dexter’s production of Othello at the National Theatre was made in Shakespeare’s Quarter-Centenary year and stands today as a masterpiece among film presentations of theatre productions.

Shakespeare’s tragic story of how a great man’s vanity is manipulated by a jealous aide to bring about his downfall has never been more movingly nor dramatically portrayed.

One of Shakespeare’s most powerful dramas, here presented by an inspired National Theatre Company.

Laurence Olivier, Maggie Smith, Frank Finlay and Joyce Redman all received both Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for their performances. A screen classic In every sense.
