Welcome to Retroville! It's 1948! Hamlet
The Academy Award winning film for best picture was Hamlet.

A Shakespearean classic about a Danish prince seeking revenge. After his father, the King, is murdered by his uncle, and his uncle marries his mother and ascends the throne, the prince's life changes dramatically. With the now-famous suicide contemplation scene wonderfully played by Olivier, this rendition of the classic play is far and away the best.
