Dr. Michael Anderegg, who last season discussed King John On Stage and Screen, joins us again to take a closer look at Orson Welles’ classic 1965 film, Chimes at Midnight. This lecture is free, though reservations are requested. Regarded as one of Welles’ highest achievements, Chimes zooms in on Sir John Falstaff’s relationship with Prince Hal, who wrestles with his loyalty between Falstaff and his father, King Henry IV. The script for the movie utilizes text from five of Shakespeare’s plays, primarily 1 Henry IV and 2 Henry IV.
