The simplest, though not always most accurate, way to get titles and
brief information is on the Internet MOvie Database:
http://us.imdb.com/search.

Up to 1990, Kenneth Rothwell's film and videography, Shakespeare on
screen: an international filmography and videography (New York, NY :
Neal-Schuman, c1990) is superior.  You will also want to look for Ken
Rothwell's new history of Shakespeare on film, soon to be issued by
Cambridge University Press.

Best,
Tom Simone

Dear Ms. Goldmane,

Modesty will not prevent my pointing out that your complete, or nearly
complete, list of Shakespeare films through 1990 is contained in
Shakespeare on Screen: An International Filmography and Videography (New
York and London: Neal Schuman, 1990), compiled by K.S. Rothwell and
Annabelle Melzer. Add to that Luke McKernan and Olwen Terris, Walking
Shadows (London: BFI, 1994) and two very recent bibliographies by Jose
Ramon Diaz-Fernandez in Post Script. 17 1&2 (1997/98), and you have a
good start, though there is yet more. Ken Rothwell

See "Shakespeare on Screen" by Kenneth Rothwell and Annabelle Henkin
Melzer (ISBN 1-55570-049-7). Printed in 1990, it omits recent works, but
it is the most comprehensive list I've seen (about 400 pages).

The Internet Movie Database, www.imdb.com, offers the most comprehensive
list of movies I know of.  If you can point a web browser there and
search for the various titles, you will not be disappointed.
