Purely in the interests of completeness, I should mention an absolutely
terrible version of Tis Pity She's a Whore, starring Charlotte Rampling,
a VHS version of which I found in my obscure local video store.

I believe that a couple of years ago SHAKSPER briefly discussed the
outstanding 1970s TV version of *Duchess* of which Tom Cartelli speaks.
It starred Eileen Atkins as the Duchess, Charles Kay as Ferdinand, and
T.  P. McKenna as the Cardinal, if I am remembering correctly.  I
borrowed a videocassette from UC Berkeley to use in my Renaissance Drama
classes at UC Santa Cruz in the late 80s/early 90s.  Otherwise, though,
I have no idea where or how to acquire it and would welcome any info
which colleagues might be able to offer.

Best,
Evelyn Gajowski
