"The Merry Wives of Windsor" is the last of Shakespeare's plays about that rotund hero-villain, Sir John Falstaff. It is a play written, history tells us, for Queen Elizabeth I, who had enjoyed the character in "Henry IV". The result is a romp, with Sir John rather getting the worst of it. Sir Anthony Quayle is again the boisterous knight, accompanied by a marvellous cast.
