Subject:        Merchant and Dracula

I know nothing about the production to which Jerry Bangham refers, but
I've just been reading Judith Halberstam's 'Technologies of Monstrosity:
Bram Stoker's _Dracula_', in _Cultural Politics at the Fin de Siecle_,
edited by Sally Ledger and Scott McCracken (Cambridge University Press,
1995).  She argues that Stoker drew on stereotypical images of the Jew
in creating Dracula - and since he was Henry Irving's stage manager at
the Lyceum, he was very familiar with Shakespeare - so maybe this
production is suggesting a similar association.

As far as *Hamlet* is concerned, Karen Dempsey should know about Bernice
Kliman's *Hamlet: Film, Television and Audio Performance* (Fairleigh
Dickinson University Press, 1988), which is very good about early film
and TV versions of the play, and often lists where copies are available
- though it is clear that many of them are not in general distribution.
