    Citizen Kane is still my number one film but Chimes at Midnight is a close second. There's no reason to ask who did the best acting job, they were all great. As compare to today film they all should get an Oscar: for best directing (especially), screen writing, cinematography, editing, acting. Starting with Orson Welles on down to Margaret Rutherford did a splendid job. All today people in the industry need to watch this masterpiece and learn. None of them needed to uncover anything else than their faces, some art we completely forgot how to do. Can you name anybody today that could compare with that whole cast in "The Chimes at Midnight"? I'm glad I lived long enough to experience such film.Thank you for the chance to input my opinion.

  • ONE OF WELLES' BEST

    I recently read Keith Baxter's memoirs "My Sentiments Exactly" which any lover of Orson Welles and great films should read. In it Baxter, who plays Prince Hal / King Henry 5 in "Chimes At Midnight" opens up a world that none of us knew: Welles' lack of financing, the actors from various countries working and waiting to work in this first-rate movie. "Chimes At Midnight" is one of the best Shakespeare movie adaptations: brilliantly acted, directed and filmed. It deserves to be known as well as "Citizen Kane."

  • As good as if not better than Citizen Kane

    Orson Welles said that if he were to get into heaven based on one movie , that movie would be Chimes At Midnight also known as Falstaff. I just had the long delayed pleasure of seeing a good print of this movie on the big screen at the Sedona Film Festival. The movie is marvelous. The acting is terrific especially Welles, John Gielgud, Keith Baxter, and Margaret Rutherford. The camera work is typical Welles with all sorts of angles and spectacular visuals. Of course it includes one of the most famous battle scenes of all time which needs to viewed on the big screen. The adaptation of parts of five Shakespeare plays is seamless. Quite frankly this is the best Shakespeare adaptation I have ever seen on film. For the Shakespeare purists you do need to remember that this an Orson Welles movie not a William Shakespeare movie.
