Orson Welles does it all in this bittersweet adaptation of Shakespeare’s plays (Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2; Richard II; Henry V; and The Merry Wives of Windsor): he wrote the adaptation, directed the film, and stars as Falstaff. The plot centers on Falstaff’s relationship with his father. Welles stated the center of the film’s story was “the betrayal of friendship.”
