Newspaper article written by Leonard Mosley, possibly after the world royal premiere of Laurence Olivier's 1955 film 'Richard III' on December 13th 1955 at Leicester Square. The article prioritises the graphic, 'savage' death scene of Olivier's titular character, claiming it is 'brutally effective cinema'. It states that the film never lags once, and Olivier has succeeded in his aim to include speed and excitement; however, it does lack emotion in most of the film, with the exception of two scenes towards the end. The exact newspaper name is unclear, possibly the Daily Express.
