The line in RIII for which Joanne Gates seeks a source is indeed from
Colley Cibber's version. There is a good account of the powerful hold
that Cibber's version had on the acting tradition of the play (the line
survives even into the Olivier movie) in Hugh M. Richmond's 'King
Richard III' in the Shakespeare in Performance series (Manchester UP,
1989).

Dear Joanne Gates: I have always used it in lectures as an example of
"improvers" to Shakespeare. I also believe that I looked it up one time,
long ago and my notes tell me it is from Cibber's RIII. I think it
really is an improvement. Don Rowan
