Chimes at Midnight (Falstaff)

Tonight I attended a rare film screening of Orson Welles' Chimes at Midnight (1965) -- also known as Falstaff, based on a series of Shakespeare plays. The screening took place at the Harvard Film Archive in Cambridge, MA. Welles' directing and acting is superb. If you love Shakespeare and Orson Welles, you don't want to miss this classic. A Spanish dvd is available on eBay. No U.S. video release is planned, but I'm hoping that changes in the near future.
