The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 8.1108. Sunday, 2 November 1997.
Date: Saturday, 1 Nov 1997 17:09:37 -0500
Subject: Richard Burton and Branagh Hamlets
The Burton Hamlet is now available on video and cd. We should have
copies of the video arriving next week, at a retail price of $115
Canadian (approx. $85 US).
Columbia Pictures tells me that Branagh's Hamlet won't be released at
the lower sell-through price until early March. Check out the
information page on our website <http://granite.cyg.net/~yorick> for the
most up-to-date information.
Also, Trevor Nunn's Twelfth Night will be available at $19.99 Canadian,
as of Tuesday, November 4.
And while I'm here, many thanks to all who have responded to our BBC
petition to reduce prices for their Shakespeare titles. I believe we
have enough names to attract some serious consideration at this point.
I'll be taking the list down to NYC on November 16.
