View all Othello reviews
When a secret marriage is planned between Othello (Laurence Olivier), a Moorish general, and Desdemona (Maggie Smith), the daughter of Senator Brabantio (Anthony Nicholls), her old suitor Roderigo (Robert Lang) takes it hard. Allying himself with Iago (Frank Finlay) who has his own grudge against Othello, the two conspire to bring the general down. When their first plan, to have him accused of witchcraft, fails, they plant evidence intended to make Othello think Desdemona is unfaithful.

This is a filmed stage play in an almost literal sense as there’s one set with rotating parts and acts walking in and out from the wings. I swear you can nearly see the actors waiting for their cues to walk in and deliver their lines. If this were a PBS Great Performances entry, I wouldn’t feel so conflicted about the proceedings.   And all of this was before talking about the giant elephant in the room, which Laurence Olivier’s blackface. No, it’s not blackface, it’s something far worse. He looks nearly blue his makeup is so extreme. It is so distracting that it takes quite a while for the sig” read more
