An aging King invites disaster, when he abdicates to his corrupt, toadying daughters, and rejects his loving and honest one.
According to Dame Diana Rigg, Sir Laurence Olivier wanted to perform all of the long speeches in single takes, as he had done in the theater, without multiple takes and pick-ups being edited together. However, due to his age, he could never get through any speech without "drying". In 2016, Rigg admitted to having never watched this version, because she felt so saddened that Olivier had not been able to achieve this ambition.
I know you do not love me, For your sisters have, as I remember, done me wrong. You have some cause; they have not.
Cordelia: No cause, no cause.
