Some scenes from one of my favourite films, Olivier's version of Hamlet, produced in 1948. With Basil Sydney as Claudius, Eileen Herlie as Gertrude, Felix Aylmer the meddling Polonius, the gorgeous Jean Simmons as Ophelia, and Sir Larry as a blonde. Some great examples of the cinematographer's art. And that great funeral march at the end by William Walton!
Used some of these for composition analysis in the Layout Design class at Sheridan.
