Episode 140. One and Only Olivier

When it comes to acting, few names loom as large in the recent history of stage or screen as that of Laurence Olivier. Alex and Jonathan discuss his contributions to the film medium through his roles in Wuthering Heights (1939), Rebecca (1940), Richard III (1955), and Marathon Man (1976). We talk about his growth as a performer, his interactions with leading directors from various periods of film history as well as his own merits as a director, and his impact on the acting profession for anyone following in his footsteps.
