This VHS (black and white) is adapted from four plays by William Shakespeare (Henry IV, Henry V, Richard III, and The Merry Wives of Windsor). The story is of the friendship between the bohemian, boisterous Falstaff and the young prince Hal, the future King of England. It dramatizes the betrayal of that friendship, and Falstaff's disillusionment when the prince does become king.
