Chimes at Midnight @ Music Box Theatre

Combining parts of five Shakespeare plays, Welles centers on the recurring character of Sir John Falstaff, friend and father figure to the heir to the British throne. Welles was born to play Falstaff, a man whose mouth and mind are as oversized as his belly, and Welles’ full embodiment of the character is surely the film’s greatest performance. Roundly considering Orson Welles’ greatest achievement, it is said there is not a word in the film not written by Shakespeare. Quite a feat, considering the film feels so completely Orson Welles!

    Hey All, I wish I could join you but I'll be working on Sunday. Could someone be nice enough to post a review of the movie? Thanks

    I highly respect Welles; but I have to admit that I might not be his world greatest fan...
