Teaching the Shakespearean Film: Olivier's "Henry V."
Gerlach, John
For at least two kinds of literature instructors, classroom use of a film derived from a Shakespeare play is potentially promising: a Shakespeare course instructor can present one attempt to visualize the implications of the printed word, and a teacher of a course which compares film and literature has at least one respectable film adaptation of a literary work. Although for several reasons Olivier's "Henry V" is not the best film to use, it does have some advantages, including the utilization of a variety of modes which may be compared when studying ways of filming stage plays. In addition, this film offers several points for study when considering film as an interpretation of a play. (JM)
