Subject: 12.1050 Branagh
Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1050 Branagh

Takashi Kozuka wrote that Branah will be portraying "Richard III" on the
stage.  I've heard that Branagh is also playing Richard III in a
recording on Naxos.  I've ordered it, but haven't received it yet.  On
the subject to Naxos, I'm not a big fan of most of their Shakespeare
recordings, but I did enjoy most of their recent recording of "Henry
V."  The only think I did not like about it was the actor portraying
Mountjoy, who sounded too much like John Cleese playing the Frenchman
taunting King Arthur in "Monty Python And The Holy Grail."
