Orson Welles' adaptation of the Falstaff story, taken from the Shakespeare plays and Holinshed's chronicles. Sir John Falstaff is the hero in this compilation of extracts from Shakespeare's 'Henry IV', Henry V, Richard II, and The Merry Wives of Windsor, made into a connected story of Falstaff's career as young Prince Hal's drinking companion. The massive knight roisters with and without the prince, philosophizes comically, goes to war (in his own fashion), and meets his final disappointment, set in a real-looking late-medieval England.
