THE TEMPEST - Richard Burton as Caliban - Maurice Evans as Prospero - 1960 - TV Broadcast



The Tempest is a 1960 American TV film based on the play by William Shakespeare and directed by George Schaefer.

NB: Although Roddy McDowall is best known for portraying Cornelius and Caesar in the original Planet of the Apes film series (1968), the British actor delivers here, at the age of 32, an outstanding performance of Ariel which remains one of the most successful recorded counterpoint approach between the characters of Caliban and Ariel . Trivia: Maurice Evans - Prospero played Dr. Zaius in the original Planet of the Apes film series (1968).
