The character of Sir John Falstaff – a vain, corpulent and cowardly knight - appears in Shakespeare’s two 'Henry IV' plays and 'The Merry Wives of Windsor'. Falstaff has also inspired a number of great classical works.
The veteran music hall comedian George Robey played Falstaff in Laurence Olivier's classic film version of 'Henry V', with a fine score by William Walton. Walton's 'Death of Falstaff' cue is particularly moving.
