Laurence Olivier delivers one of his greatest Shakespearean performances as the lead role in this Academy Award-winning 1948 version of Hamlet. Seldom has the tragic story of the Danish Prince, tortured by his duty to his murdered father and by the guilt and fear he feels at the prospect of revenge, been so brilliantly portrayed in this immortal story of murder, intrigue, madness and despair.
