Subject:        Robert Helpmann's Tempest?

In Roy Walker's essay "In Fair Verona," reprinted in _Focus on
Shakespearean Films-, ed. by Charles W. Eckert (Prentice Hall, 1972),
there is a reference to a planned film of The Tempest by Robert Helpmann
(121).  So far in my research, I have been unable to come up with any
other reference to this proposed film.  Can any list members help me
here?

Also, is there any kind of resource on the Shakespearean films that
could have been?  It seems that there have been many high profile ones
that never made it:  -Hamlet- with either Barrymore or Leslie Howard;
Olivier's -MacBeth-; Welles' -Merchant- and -Lear-; Michael Powell's
-Tempest-; Michael Redgrave's -Antony & Cleopatra-.  I'm sure many
others exist.

Thanks for all help,
Hugh Davis

Subject:        Shakespeare in New York

Some students in my Shakespeare class this semester have never been to a
theater performance, let alone a Shakespeare performance.

There are two productions that will open this fall in New York that they
could possibly get to see.  They are PERICLES, which will open at the
Joseph Papp Theater on Nov. 1st, and the Stratford Festival production
of MUCH ADO, which will be at City Center from Nov. 12-29.

Which would be a better choice if they can see only one?
