Another great example of the "winter of our discontent" soliloquy. It would provide a great contrast to other versions as it is set during WWII. Be forewarned that the actual soliloquy doesn't begin until 5.33 seconds into the video. This is the beginning of a film. Enjoy the ambience: jazz age music and dancing dignitaries in the ballroom, then a portion of the speech in the men's room. 1995 film, Richard III (8:29)
