        David McFadden's inquiry about Charles Gray and the BBC/Time-Life
The Shakespeare Plays series reminds me that Gray also played Caesar in Julius
Caesar, the Duke of York in R2, and Solinus in Err. He has also been seen
on the BBC in 1972 as Antonio in MV and, I believe, in 1974 as Malvolio in TN,
though the latter two productions were not a part of the BBC series but
regularly transmitted programs in the UK. Ken Rothwell

Your students will be most familiar with Charles Gray in "The Rocky Horror
Picture Show" as the vilified Inspector, at whom I believe it is still
traditional for the audience to shout obscenities every time he appears on
screen.  Gray also, of course, is wonderful as Caesar in the BBC "Julius
Caesar."
