Henry V - The BBC Shakespeare Collection DVD - NEW & SEALED
"And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here.
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."
Starring David Gwillim, Keith Drinkel, Bryan Pringle, David Buck and Tim Wylton...
Insulted by the Dauphin, the newly-crowned King Henry V gathers his troops for war. But Henry must convince his men that he has left his wild days behind, and prove himself as a leader.
Henry V tells a tale of intrigue and betrayal, courtly romance, and a heroic battle against outrageous odds. The lead, played here by David Gwillim, is one of the most coveted of roles with inspiring lines including the St Crispin’s Day speech.
