Henry V is a 1944 adaptation of William Shakespeare's play of the same name. It stars Laurence Olivier, who also directed.

The story focuses on the young Henry, who is determined to bring France under English control once again. Henry leads his troops through several battles in France, culminating in the Battle of Agincourt. Henry then woos Catherine of Valois, daughter of the defeated French King Charles VI.
