Synopsis
Trailer for HENRY V (1944). Laurence Olivier is seen seated at Denham Studios in 1944. He reads a letter he has written to Filippo Del Giudice telling him of the completion of the film. There follows a letter from Del Giudice to Eagle-Lion, the distributors, an extract from the film (the Agincourt charge), title and credits, and a final advertisement for the Carlton Theatre, Haymarket with prices. Unlike the main feature the trailer does have the title HENRY V on screen.
