I attended the press screening of Michael Rubbo's "Much Ado About
Something" at Film Forum last week and found it to be a witty and
visually attractive essay on the authorship controversy. Even Rubbo's
attempts to turn Marlowe into Shakespeare are more charming than
strident, and Jonathan Bate and Stanley Wells speak cogently and sternly
for the Stratfordian side. Before hastening to condemn, go and see it.
It's an entertainment. Ken Rothwell
