Laurence Olivier (who also directed) is unforgettable in the twisted, treacherous title role in this elaborate adaptation of Shakespeare's gripping royal drama. Believing he should occupy England's throne rather than his brother, Edward IV (Cedric Hardwicke), Richard sets into motion a complex plot to displace him that ultimately leads to tragedy. Superlative cast includes Ralph Richardson, John Gielgud, Claire Bloom. Restored version; 158 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
