Henry V – armored ultimatum

The Duke of Exeter (played by Brian Blessed) delivers King Henry V’s ultimatum to King Charles VI of France.

Someone on YouTube claimed Brian Blessed owned his own set of armor, and wore it for the role.

Very cool – if it’s true. But this other comment was very funny, I thought:

“Interesting fact: Brian Blessed is the only actor who didn’t need to wear a costume for the filming of this scene. He just turned up in his usual garb and they went straight ahead.”
