While we are on the subject of Antony and Cleopatra, will someone please
tell me what Caesar (and Shakespeare) has in mind with Caesar's last
speech in V, i. ?  (At first blush, it looks like a public-relations
ploy, but a) this is not Caesar's style, and b) what need would there
have been for such if it were?).

There is  an A&C among the BBC  TV  series.,  Why do you  want it? Are
you going to direct it?  Cheers!

Richard Johnson / Janet Suzman (RSC)

Alan Bates / Helen Mirren (NT) (recent - some thought it a flop.

Antony Hopkins has done Ant with someone, but....? who?

The BBC Bardathon way back had a decent but not great one - can't recall
cast. BUT given the probs with acquiring BBC videos in USA, maybe that's
not a starter?

RSC website is a start.

The best video performance of A&C is Trevor Nunn's 1973 version,
starring Richard Johnson, Janet Suzman, Patrick Stewart and Corin
Redgrave.  It's the finest production of this play I've ever seen-- a
remarkable piece of work.  You can order it through most video
catalogues, starting with Movie Unlimited.

Try the BBC series version of _A & C_. It's relatively complete, not an
adaptation. It also boasts two superb actors in the title roles: Jane
Lapotaire (one of the great classical actresses of our time, she's also
my choice for best Lady Macbeth ever -- in the same series) and Colin
Blakely. Blakely is a decidedly mature Antony -- as the role was
written, not as it might be "adapted" in some romanticized productions.
A good choice, this video, but an expensive one (if anyone knows of a
discounted price on this series, let me know!). Good luck,
