Needing to bolster his domestic sovereignty and unite England -- a nation in disarray -- the newly crowned King Henry V (Laurence Olivier) invades France over territorial disputes, but a protracted campaign across Northern France soon takes a heavy toll on his army. At the decisive Battle of Agincourt, however, a superior defensive position and the exceptional skill of the British longbows turn the tide in England's favor in this stirring epic.

Exceptional Criterion DVD. The transfer is flawless, and the extras are meaningful and well thought-out. This DVD should serve as an example of the way all older catalog titles should be handled.
