By PAUL SAWYER
Sir Lauren ce 'Olivier, in the Na-
tional Theatre of Great Britain's
filmed production, is not the great-
est Othello of all time. His per-
formance has several nagging
faults and is generally uneven. But
he is surely one of the boldest and
most compelling Othello's you will
ever see.
Indeed, for the full three hours.
Sir Laurence- pulls out all the
stops. He is the dominantfigure
in every scene in which he ap-
pears, investing the role with a
nobility and dignity that is rare
even for Othello. He declaims
commandingly in his newly-ac-
quired bass; he shrieks, sobs, stag-
gers and reveals his full versatile
range. His descent from cool gran-
deur to a state of degradation
and madness, the crowning
achievement of this performance.
is a terrifying thing to behold.
The other high 4.point of the
production is Frank Finlay's bril-
liant and original interpretation
of Iago. Whereas most actors pre-
sent this famous villain as suave

and insidiously Mephistophelean,
loading each line with dark sug-
gestiveness, Finlay underplays the
role, which makes him in many
respects much more terrifying.
Finlay has Robert Newton'§ avar-
icious eyes, along with thick rub-
bery lips that sneer, curl and bare
teeth with chilling virtuosity. His
Iago is shifty and cold, a grotesque
combination of wit and crude vul-
garity. The motivation of 'Iago's
evil deeds is justly'placed in the
nature of the man himself.
It is therefore not surprising
that the film's best moments are
in the third-and fourth-act temp-
tation scenes. The whole matter
of the briefness of Othello's temp-
tation and the suddenness of his
change from an exalted state is
usually the greatest problem in
appreciating the play. Sir Lau-
rance increases his challenge by
making the early Othello su-
premely rational, even suavely de-
tached-lacking to an extent per-
haps the simplicity of character
that is essential to an understand-
ing of the Moor.
Sir Laurence almost completely

does away with the problem, how-
ever, in the intensity of his act-
ing-which becomes also his chief
fault, since he increasingly lacks
restraint as the play goes on. The
degree of his suffering contrasts
brilliantly with Finlay's under-
played lago, who during most o
Othello's ranting remains impas-
sive save for the hideously dart-
ing of his eyes. Othello properly
dominates the early temptation
scenes, making his eventual total
submission to ago's power all the
more terrifying.' These scenes are
as brilliant an interplay between
two actors as I have ever seen.
The other actors are competent
but unexciting. IDesdemona is a bit
dull, Cassio a bit silly, Emilia a
bit too matronly benevolent
(which inconsistent her love of the
word "whore").
For whatever faults he has, Sir
Laurence still dominates this pro-
duction, and rightly so. In places
he is uncertain; in places he soars
to heights of genius; almost
everywhere, his performance has a
driving vitality and imaginative-
ness that makes it a rare and re-
warding experience.
