Synopsis
James Earl Jones gave one of his finest performances in the title role of Joseph Papp's acclaimed New York Shakespeare Festival production of the Bard's tragedy, putting a new spin on this classic story of one family's vainglorious battle over the affections and favor of an aging monarch. Jones and the production's original cast re-created their roles for this 1974 television special; the supporting cast includes Raul Julia, Rosiland Cash, Paul Sorvino, René Auberjonois, and Lee Chamberlin. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
