UK/1937/92mins/U. Dir: Paul Czinner. With Laurence Olivier, Elisabeth Bergner.

“Featuring the best of British talent from the 1930s, As You Like It stars a brooding young Laurence Olivier in his first Shakespearean role on screen, with David Lean editing and Jack Cardiff on camera. Paul Czinner directed his wife, Elisabeth Bergner, as a charming tomboyish Rosalind, alongside heavyweights of British theatre Leon Quartermaine and Henry Ainley. The magical Forest of Arden, created by renowned art director Lazare Meerson, is a merry fantasy world where wit and romantic repartee sparkle against William Walton’s elegant score.

“Bergner can be all inconstancy with the poised and effortless balance that only a great actress commands” – The New York Times
