I find myself thinking the earlier filmed versions were right in pumping up the patriotism before the troops, not before a dottering handful of nobles.
I still am sickened by the Henry IV Part One that was so slashed that there was no possibility of delighting in Hotspur and lamenting his end. Henry IV Part One as directed by Eyre was better only because it is a lesser play and was not so damaged by the hacking away at the script. What I mean is that in Part Two no one's character is revealed in his speech, so taking out half or two thirds of any passage thins the "verbiage" (as Jeremy Irons ineffably says) but does not really alter your sense of the speaker. BECAUSE it is a lesser play it is not as damaged by the cuts.
Of the four, Richard II was the best, we both thought.
