Dear Lee,

Morgan Freeman played Coriolanus in the 1979 New York Shakespeare
Festival production in Central Park.  It wasn't a movie.

Regards

Dear Lee Zhao, The video (not a film) of Morgan Freeman in Coriolanus
from a 1979 New York Shakespeare Festival production is cited in
Shakespeare on Screen: An International Filmography and Videography (New
York and London: Neal Schuman, 1990), p.49 (Item #66). I compiled this
tome (with Annabelle Melzer) in the hope that students could easily
answer these kinds of questions with a trip to a library reference room.
The entry points out that screening was possible, at least in 1990, in
the TOFT (Theatre on Film and Tape) Collection at the New York Public
Library, Lincoln Center Branch. Sincerely, Ken Rothwell
