This email is for Jim Schaefer.
Regarding silent film Shakespeare, the magnum opus on this topic is Robert
Hamilton Ball's SHAKESPEARE ON SILENT FILM, a book well worth a look. There
was, unsuprisingly I guess given the perennial use of Shakespeare to class up
any new medium (see the spate of recent bardocentric CD-ROMs), a HUGE number of
silent film Shakespeare's, most of which have received little attention since
teh advent of talkies.
If you want to own a copy of this book, let me know as I've seen some around
