To Syd Kasten:

>I was trying to confirm an impression that Henry Hotspur was played by Sean Connery

I can confirm this.  Connery did play Hotspur in AN AGE OF KINGS.
Anyone can reference the full cast in Kenneth Rothwell very useful
book.  I'm struggling to remember the title, alas.  SHAKESPEARE ON FILM,
I think.

The Plantagenets. The maligned amazon.com has never been forthcoming,
and bookfinder.com gives only The Hollow Crown (??)

Sally Beauman, in "The Royal Shakespeare Company: a History of Ten
Decades" describes "The Hollow Crown" as a "{Barton's} theatre concert
program." It starred Dorothy Tuttin and other RSC members. I'm fairly
sure I saw it on television.

Beauman's book has quite a bit on War of the Roses.
