Comment:        Re: SHK 11.0959 Facets Video

I recently ordered "William Shakespeare: His Life and Times" (the Tim
Curry miniseries) from Facets-they had it in stock when everyone else
claimed it was out of print.  However, it turns out there's a serious
flaw in the production of the video-the music track on parts 3,4,5 and 6
is hideously warped, making it nearly impossible to hear much of the
dialogue (a clerk checked all their copies for me and reported that they
all have the same flaw).  Facets has been very helpful and is in the
process of trying to contact the original distributors-but until they
do, I don't recommend that anyone order this video.  But I highly
recommend Facets-intelligent, helpful people work there.
