Subject:        Looking for MND / Beatles Video.

Hi, folks.

I'm sure that someone can help me out here.  I remember, vaguely,
someone on the list mentioning a video in which the Beetles acted the
Pyramus and Thisbe play from _Midsummer Night's Dream_, with John Lennon
as Thisbe, in drag.  A friend once mentioned that the title was 'Fun
with the Fab Four', but she could have been wrong, and my memory might
have failed me.  In any case, the local artsy video place doesn't have a
copy.

Does anyone know what the video is really called?  And if anyone
distributes it?  It strikes me as a powerful teaching resource, since it
has a metadramatic import that's hard to convey without an example.

Cheers,
Sean.

Subject:        Query re. Fritz Leiber

Can anyone help with information about the actor Fritz Leiber? I believe
he was an American and well-known for his Shakespearean roles early this
century. I have a photograph of him as Hamlet which I am trying to date.
I need a few biographical details, but most of all I need to know when
and where he played Hamlet.

There is an account of his performance in this role in 1919 but I'm
hoping for something earlier.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Alan R. Young
