To celebrate the centenary of Orson Welles’ birth, Mr Bongo Films is delighted to announce the release of a brand new restored 50th Anniversary Edition of his masterpiece Falstaff Chimes at Midnight.
One of the most radical and groundbreaking of all Shakespeare adaptations, Chimes at Midnight was Orson Welles’ favourite of his films. It has also long been a firm favourite with the critics, and with a recent run of 5/5 reviews (Time Out, The Guardian, The Independent), it looks like the reputation of this masterpiece will continue to grow.
For its 50th Anniversary release we created an official trailer. In the past there have been some good fan made trailers which can be found on YouTube, but we felt it deserved an official trailer too.
Falstaff Chimes At Midnight will be in cinemas from 1 May 2015 as part of the 100 years of Orson Welles celebrations. This will be followed by a DVD and Blu-ray release on 29 June 2015.
