Did anyone else see "To Be Hamlet," an hour-long documentary
concentrating on various actors' and directors' interpretation of the
role?  I am not sure who produced it, since I switched it on after it
had started, and I think it was aired on Arts and Entertainment, the
cable channel, in the U.S.  Some memorable moments, among which was
Olivier's disclaiming of Guilgud's "sing-songy" delivery (with suitable
apologies to Sir John).  Roy Flannagan

In response to Ken's query concerning the films of Hamlet and Romeo and
Juliet, let us not forget to comment also on The Taming of the Shrew.
To start things off, I would like to suggest the the presentation of
Romeo and Juliet as real adolescents created a much more refreshing
outlook on their parts, especially that of Juliet.
As far as Kate goes, I have yet to see a presentation that make it seem
highly unlikely that anyone could ever wear her down.
Thank you for your interest,

This is not about Shakespeare but is related.  I wonder if
anyone can help me locate a film or tape of Middleton and
Rowley's *The Changeling*.
A number of years ago it was shown on our PBS station, WGBH,
but a call to them turned up no information, nor does it
appear in the Library of Congress *Catalog of Audiovisual
I hope this may stir someone's memory.
