For a colleague of mine interested in film and Shakespeare, could anyone tell
if and where a copy of Orson Welles' *Chimes at Midnight" can be obtained?  Any
response to me personally would be appreciated.

I'm starting work in the morning on Mark Lamos' R&J, and I remember some fun
speculations on SHAKSPER about alternative futures for the protagonists - but -
I am particularly intrigued/puzzled by the back-to-back scenes at the top of
Act V, where Balthasar brings false, or rather, incomplete, news to R, and
Friar John is, he says, prohibited by outside forces from bringing a truthful
message from Friar Lawrence to R, and the shadowy identity of the Apothecary.
 
Any thoughts? Why do all involved lose trust in a positive outcome
of imagined delight?
