Movie Info

When a secret marriage is planned between Othello (Laurence Olivier), a Moorish general, and Desdemona (Maggie Smith), the daughter of Senator Brabantio (Anthony Nicholls), her old suitor Roderigo (Robert Lang) takes it hard. Allying himself with Iago (Frank Finlay) who has his own grudge against Othello, the two conspire to bring the general down. When their first plan, to have him accused of witchcraft, fails, they plant evidence intended to make Othello think Desdemona is unfaithful.

    The worst Olivier Shakespearean film that I have seen. Not only is Olivier shockingly displayed in blackface but the portrayal is no Hamlet or Henry V. Even the film's filming locations lack imagination.

    If you can't recognize Olivier, he's the one in black face.
