Subject:  	Film of Burton's Hamlet brought to light
 
Dear Ken,                    22 October 1991
 
I always suspect that film news is heard in North America
long before the UK, so this may not be news.  Still you
can be the judge of whether it might be of interest ---
 
The recording of Burton's Hamlet has been useful in the
classroom for me, and I am very pleased to hear that a film
version has now been revealed.  In London the following item
appeared in The Guardian newspaper on 21 Oct 1991 (p.3):
 
FILM PREMIERE FOR BURTON'S HAMLET
A full-length film version of the 1964 New York stage
production of Hamlet, starring Richard Burton, is to be
screened in Cardiff next month after the film was
discovered among the late actor's personal possessions.
   The 3 1/2 - hour film was intended to go on general
release after the play ended its New York run.  But
Burton decided the film should not be released while
there was the possibility of him doing further stage
work.
   His widow, Sally, discovered the film when packing up
the couple's home in Switzerland.
   The proceeds of the premiere, on November 10, Burton's
birthday, will go to the Romanian Orphanage Appeal Fund
in Wales.
