Is this true?  Othello movie with Branagh and Fishburne at those salaries ?(11
million)  I suppose since Shakespeare was so popular during his time (so was
"pop culture" in essence,) them his works should command the same "90's"
salaries now, but boy, what is next, "the Comedy of Errors" becoming a Paully
Shore vehicle?  Hope the salaries are the only "pop culture" thing about the
production.  I don't "blame" Branagh for taking the money, let's face it we all
would but the salaries do not seem to go along with quality art is my concern.
But perhaps it is a good sign that Shakespeare would command that kind of money
for its actors, someone must have faith the movie will sell tickets-eh?

If Emilia is a willing participant in Iago's schemes, wouldn't that require
changing the play significantly (not just directorially interpreting--but
actually cutting lines)? I'm curious why you think IT WORKED WELL---How did
they deal with the ending??? ---Another more general question--- Will EMMA
THOMPSON Be Emilia? CS

There is bound to be someplace that sells busts of famous people. The one we
have in the library came from Gale Research, Inc. It was one of their
promotional perks several years ago. If "x" number of books were purchased you
would receive a bust of the author of your choice. There were several to choose
from including: Faulkner, Twain, Shakespeare, etc.  I think they might have
offered some of famous individuals such as Martin Luther King and FDR. It's
been a number of years. Gale is still offering a few selected busts of authors,
but now it is for placing standing orders for books such as 20th Cent. Lit.
Crit., Contemporary Lit. Crit., etc.
