Subject:        Othello and Iago

John Velz, who was privileged to see Robeson and Ferrer do _Othello_ on
Broadway right after WW2, writes:

"[Ferrer as Iago] made the most of his soliloquies which are sure to
ensnare an audience if spoken well."

This classic production has, as John knows, become legendary, and one of
the legends (which, perhaps, John can confirm or no) is that in Iago
