Leon Charles in Merry Wives of Windsor

Merry Wives of Windsor

1983 NR

Down on his luck, Sir John Falstaff (Leon Charles) sets out to seduce and then blackmail two married women (Gloria Grahame and Valerie Seelie-Snyder) in this highly accessible production of Shakespeare's comedy, with sets and costumes in the play's original 16th-century style. When mistresses Page and Ford receive almost identical love letters from Falstaff, they unite in a scheme to get revenge on the portly knight.
