Subject: Branagh Hamlet Repeated on TNT
I missed the beginning, so was relieved when the special airing of the
uncut Branagh Hamlet ended last night, Saturday, with the announcement
that it would repeat Sept. 11th at 1:00 p.m. (EDT).
Though the program guide schedules it for four hours, it will run over.
Mercedes Benz I though did a decent job of not interrupting except for
the briefest of ad breaks between acts (or for the 3rd break, doing it
after the last line of IV, iv, "My thoughts be bloody..." which is where
the 2-cassette video, and the film itself breaks. It's not 70mm, it's
been on the premium channels without the ads, and my school and myself
own the video already; but I'm going to make sure to advise students in
my classes to take note of it.
