Despite Romeo's efforts to stop the fight, Tybalt badly wounds Mercutio, who curses both the Montague and Capulet houses before dying.
Enraged over his friend's death, Romeo retaliates by fighting Tybalt and killing him.
Laurence Olivier's involvement in the production was by happenstance.
He was in Rome to film The Shoes of the Fisherman and visited the studio where Romeo and Juliet was being shot.
Juliet pleads with her parents to postpone the marriage, but they refuse and threaten to disown her.
Although Zeffirelli does not mention it in his autobiography, Mc Cartney provided plenty of details on this account (including meeting with Olivia Hussey and exchanging telegrams with her) in his co-written autobiography The director engaged in a worldwide search for unknown teenage actors to play the parts of the two lovers.
Leonard Whiting was 17 at the time, and Olivia Hussey was 16, and Zeffirelli adapted the play in such a way as to play to their strengths and hide their weaknesses: for instance, long speeches were trimmed, and he emphasized reaction shots.
Later, Romeo stumbles into the secluded garden under Juliet's bedroom balcony and the two exchange impassioned pledges.
They are secretly married the next day by Romeo's confessor and father figure, Friar Laurence, with the assistance of Juliet's nursemaid.
Sir Laurence Olivier spoke the film's prologue and epilogue and reportedly dubbed the voice of the Italian actor playing Lord Montague, but was not credited in the film.
