Subject:        PBS 1974 Lear
 
The untimely death of Raul Julia reminded me (once again) of a production
of "King Lear," taped from a live Shakespeare in the Park performance and
broadcast on PBS in 1974. James Earl Jones played Lear, Raul Julia played
Edmund, and (I was just reminded this afternoon) Rene Aberjonois played
Edgar -- three stellar performances all.
 
Does anyone know if this production is available on video?

What better way to recall the work in Shakespeare of Raul Julia, who
died yesterday at age 54 of a stroke, than to take our Paul Mazursky's
1982 film?
 
Julia played a sexy Caliban. I recall his wonderful Petruchio and his
daring Macbeth on stage at the Public Theater. He will be missed.
