Based on the most popular of Shakespeare's historical plays, HENRY V was made to boost the morale of British troops during World War II. Laurence Olivier was Oscar-nominated for his mesmerising performance as King Henry V, with an excellent supporting cast that includes theatre veterans Leslie Banks, Robert Newton, George Cole and Renee Ashershon.
The film was also Oscar nominated for Best Picture and winner of an Honorary Award for Laurence Olivier for his outstanding achievement as actor, producer and director.
HENRY V has been re-mastered to the latest High Definition format with full digital restoration on the sound and picture, returning it to its intensely colourful former glory.
