Sarah Bernhardt is famous for having assayed the role, late in life, in
French, with a wooden leg.

I am in the process of compiling information about Shakespeare and Women
in Shakespeare for Women=92s History Month, and would appreciate the
addresses of any Web Sites you know of which address these or related
subjects.

Thank you for your help.

The actress was Diane Venora, I think, and several years later she
played Ophelia to Kevin Kline=92s Hamlet, on stage and in a PBS taped
production directed by Kline.

I know Hamlet was played by Frances de Latour in England. Frances was
best known for her role as the man hungry female in the TV comedy
"Rising Damp".  I know little about the production except it got some
prominent mention by the critics. I do not even know if she played it as
a comedy (cringe all purists). Date uncertain probably circa 1985.
