In this first film version of William Shakespeare's classic pastoral comedy, Sir Laurence Olivier stars as Orlando while Elisabeth Bergner is Rosalind, his secret admirer who disguises herself as a boy in order to stay near to him.
Nearly all of the actors involved had performed the work on stage previously, adding to the stellar overall performance.
A particular highlight is Olivier's magnificent delivery of the famous "All the world's a stage..." monologue.
