Tower Of London

1939

Rowland V. Lee
Director
Universal Pictures
Production Company

Richard III, an heir to the throne is bitter that his brother, the King, has children and as such they push his status further down the pecking order in line to be the future king.
Karloff's performance as the executioner is as top-class as you'd expect, and Rathbone has another excuse to show what he can do with a sword in his hand (he would have made a great Jedi knight!) Barbara O'Neil's rather revealing dress is also worth admiration. ~ Lord Heath

Richard III gets the Universal horror treatment. Not bad, but no classic. ~ The Sloth
