Ellen,

Credit for the apt phrase "sublime Smoktunovsky" belongs to the sublime
Graham Bradshaw, though I enthusiastically agree with him.

I don't know if this is the film you are thinking of.  I don't remember
what you describe being shown on any of the four PBS stations in my
area.  It may have been a local event.  The film is in Russian with
English sub-titles.  Here are the essential details on the film Graham
mentioned, copied from Rothwell and Melzer, film # 116.  Rothwell gives
a full page to the movie, if you want to look it up.

Gamlet (Not a typo.)
1964, Lenfilm
Dir: Grigori Kozintsev

There is also Kozintsev's book where he discusses the film.  I just tore
the dust jacket removing it from the shelf to bring it to the computer,
darn it.

Kozintsev, Grigori. Shakespeare: Time and Conscience (New York: Hill and
Wang.  1966)

Kozintsev has another book, according to Rothwell/Melzer, but I have
never seen it.

All the best,

I think that Mike was referring to the film starring Innokenti
Smoktunovsky, Mikhail Nazvanov, Elza Radzin-Szolkonis, Yuri Tolubeyev,
and Anastasia Virtinskaya, relased in Russia in 1964.

Those in the Vancouver area might be interested in the fact that it's
playing at the Pacific Cinemateque Saturday, July 28, at seven and
Sunday at nine.  It's part of a festival of Soviet new-wave cinema.

Cheers,
Se
