Newspaper clipping of an article by Majdalany, reviewing Laurence Olivier's 1951 film 'Richard III'. The article is written under four subheadings: 'Treacherous', praising Olivier's performance of the villainous yet popular character of Richard; 'Pitiless', praising the portrayal of Richard as not a pitiless villain but as an 'artist in villainy'; 'Passionless', criticising Claire Bloom and Ralph Richardson's performances as Lady Anne and Buckingham respectively; finally 'Generous', praising the supporting cast and music of William Walton, and dismissing the disappointing final battle. The article includes pictures of Olivier and Bloom as their characters in stills from the film, and Her Majesty The Queen in attendance.
