Chimes at Midnight

Director/star Orson Welles labored for years to bring his low-budget, black and white Shakespeare tribute to the big screen. Welles' script mashes together several Shakespeare plays to relate the ongoing story of legendary drunkard/sidekick Sir John Falstaff. The film follows Falstaff's "career"—from beloved drinking companion to Prince Hal through his martial career and on into his sad denouement. Though somewhat penny-pinching, this pet project from 1965 mixes boisterous humor with emotional drama. 118 minutes
