"Based on another of Shakespeare's cross-dressing comedies, As You Like It deals with the a young woman named Rosalind, who runs aways with her best friend Celia and the court jester when she is banished from her kingdom. On the road, she impersonates a young man named Ganymede and Celia impersonates an old woman Aliena. The first film adaptation of this story, other notable adaptations include Basil Coleman's 1978 "As You Like It" with Helen Mirren, Christine Edzard's 1992 version with James Fox"
"One of, if not the, earliest film adaptations of As You Like It. It was also the first time Laurence Olivier appeared in a Shakespeare adaptation.
The film is quite faithful to the original play, only removing content and adding nothing."
