Subject:        Branagh->Shackleton

I went to see "The Endurance: Shackleton's Legendary Antarctic
Expedition" exhibit at The Field Museum in Chicago today.  The exhibit
was remarkable.  I was amused to see a photograph of Shackleton's very
handsome Canadian dog, "Shakespeare".  I wanted to find a picture of the
dog on the web so I did a Google search for "shackleton dog
shakespeare", and the first thing that popped up was

   http://www.geocities.com/syendurance/film.html

It is a page containing three press releases about Kenneth Branagh
producing and starring in a four-hour TV movie about the Endurance
expedition.  I never did find a picture of Shakespeare.
