Subject:        Shy Not Thy Gory Locks at Me

According to the Wall Street Journal, Bravo will be running "Shylock" on
4/22 6-7 pm EDT, with repeats Sunday at noon and 7 pm. "Moroccan-born
Canadian filmmaker Pierre Lasry looks at this villain/victim/buffoon in
the context of many centuries of Christian anti-Semitism, the birth of
capitalism, and the Holocaust and its effects...Mr. Lasry intercuts
interviews with historians, directors and actors with rare clips from
Orson Welles' unfinished "Merchant," performances by Laurence Olivier,
Dustin Hoffman and others."
