One of the Nazis in "To Be or Not To Be" remarks of the Jack Benny
character: "What he does to Shakespeare, we are now doing to Poland." I
have often found this comment applicable to contemporary directors...

Since there seems to be interest in "To Be or Not To Be" just now, it is
worth mentioning that list member Tanya Gough has both versions
available at her shop, Poor Yorick.  The original Lubitsch version sells
for $25.99 Canadian/ $19.99 US, and the Mel Brooks remake for $12.99
Canadian / $9.99 US.  If you want just one, spend extra and go for the
Lubitsch.  A truly brilliant movie.

You can find Tanya's on line catalog by at www.pooryorick.com/
