Chimes at Midnight

directed by Orson Welles in English starring Orson Welles, Jeanne Moreau, Margaret Rutherford (1965)

Combining parts of five Shakespeare plays, Welles centers on the recurring character of Sir John Falstaff, friend and father figure to the heir to the British throne. Welles was born to play Falstaff, a man whose mouth and mind are as oversized as his belly. Roundly considering Orson Welles’ greatest achievement, it’s said there’s not a word in the film not written by Shakespeare. Quite a feat, considering the film feels so completely Orson Welles!

50th anniversary.
