Subject:        New Othello Film
 
Regarding the new film of "Othello": I saw the item in Time which said that
Kenneth Branagh was going to direct, and that Laurence Fishburne was close to
being signed to play the Moor.  Then today in the Chicago Tribune there was a
brief item (all right, all right, it was in the INC. gossip column) which I
might as well quote in full since it's so brief:
 
  "INC. hears Kenneth Branagh, busy in L.A. with plans for his lead role in
  the movie 'Othello' with Laurence Fishburne and possibly Uma Thurman as
  Desdemona, also was looking for a distributor for a film he wrote and
  directed, 'In the Bleak Midwinter.'  It's a romantic comedy --- really ---
  about misfits who put on a production of 'Hamlet,' with Joan Collins and
  Jennifer Saunders (of TV's 'Absolutely Fabulous')."
 
Uma Thurman as Desdemona.  Hmmmm.  I'll reserve judgement.  The next item
in the column mentions that Branagh want to do a movie of "the complete
'Hamlet' --- every word", which would take 3 1/2 hours, and in which Branagh
would star.  I for one would be interested to know what edition Branagh will
use for his "complete" Hamlet, given all the textual questions involved with
the play.

Re: Paul MacDonald's query about reviews of Macready's Hamlet at Covent Garden.
 I suggest you get in touch with the Theatre Museum near Covent Garden.  They
have have and excellent archive dealing with English theatre history and
performance including a a great deal of material on Macready.  I do not have
the address, but it should not be difficult to acquire.  The theatre is
physically located about a block from the theatre.
