Subject:        Playing Cassius

Many thanks to the theater and movie buffs who replied on-list or off to
my query about Ronald Pickup as Cassius.  The answer received from three
of you is that Pickup played Cassius opposite John Gielgud's Caesar in
the prod. directed by John Schlesinger at the National Theatre in 1977.
I gladly learned about *Shakespeare on Screen: An International
Filmography and Bibliography* (N.Y.: Neal Schuman, 1990) by Kenneth
Rothwell and about the alternative Internet Movie Database at, though neither could answer my question, as the
production turned out to be on stage, not on screen.

Cheers for research tools,
