Original Soundtrack-"Richard III"(RCA Red Seal LM 1940)-Lp. This LP features the 1955 movie-"Richard II". The movie stars Laurence Olivier and he is featured on the front cover in an original scene.Laurence Olivier was the director, co-screenwriter (with Alan Dent), and star of this robust adaptation of Shakespeare's drama, which, as Bruce Eder has written, "was the final, crowning glory of the British studio system and the end of the great cycle of British films aimed at international audiences." Olivier begins his Richard III by recapitulating the final scene of Henry IV, Part III with Edward IV (Cedric Hardwicke) being crowned king. In the background of the celebration, Richard (Laurence Olivier) jealously views the proceedings. Soon afterwards, Edward IV is murdered, drowned in a vat of wine. Richard becomes king and, after proceeding with a succession of intrigues and duplicities, he finds his kingdom in dire peril, set upon by Henry Tudor (Stanley Baker) and mustering a final defense for his realm at the Battle of Bosworth. The LP has been autographed on the front cover by Laurence Olivier in black fountain pen.............CONDITION OF VINYL,COVER AND AUTOGRAPH IS VG PLUS..............
