Subject: Branagh's Hamlet
Good news! Branagh's Hamlet *will* be coming back into print this
spring, and a widescreen edition is also expected.
Basically, what happened was that Columbia Tristar lost the rights to
Castle Rock Entertainment product, and Warner picked it up. Thanks to
my very alert rep at Columbia, we were able to track it down and
discovered the title had just been added to the Warner roster.
I'll keep you posted when we have an exact date.
Poor Yorick - CD & Video Emporium
[Editor's Query: Will the Branagh *Hamlet* be available on DVD? In fact,
what other Shakespeare titles are scheduled for DVD release? I have the
Branagh Ado, the Luhrmann Rom., and Shakespeare in Love.]
