Subject: Hamlet in The Imposter / Macbeth and John Wayne
In Stanley Tucci's wonderful film The Imposters, there is a ham actor
who does the "I know not seems" speech at a NY theater.
Also, in an early John Wayne movie (a western) I have not yet tacked
down, there is a reference to Macbeth's "a life told by an idiot" when
the villain is exposed as a Shakespearean.
The lead actress's character is named Susan in the Wayne film, and she
is a blonde. He looks pretty young.
