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.
Robbie Coltrane played Falstaff in Kenneth Branagh's more recent screen adaptation of 'Henry V'. Considered one of the best Shakespeare film adaptations ever made, the stirring score came from Branagh's longtime composer associate Patrick Doyle, who sings on the soundtrack.
