Subject:        Shylock Tape

So, OK, I was wrong.

A few years back there was a discussion about the footage Orson Welles
shot for a film version of *MOV.*  I had read that the footage was
stolen from Welles hotel room.  Someone else thought it was still
available.  Sorry, but I don't remember who disagreed with me.

That towel you just saw was thrown in by me.  I just purchased a NTSC
tape titled *Shylock,* produced by the National Film Board of Canada.

It is a 57 examination of the character of Shylock, in part illustrated
by footage of Olivier, Dustin Hoffman, and *ORSON WELLES UNFINISHED
MERCHANT OF VENICE...*  Quote from the back of the box copy.

I checked with Tanya Gough at Poor Yorick in Stratford, Ontario.  She
can supply it in Canada, but for legal reasons, not to the U.S.  In the
U.S.  call 1-800-542-2164.  The back of the box has no information for
purchasing outside the U.S. and Canada.  The tape is in the NTSC format.

All the best,
Mike Jensen
