To Ronald Corthell:

There's a wonderfully camp 1971 version of *'Tis Pity She's a Whore*
which I've used in class and which describes itself as "freely adapted
from John Ford's tragedy" -- it's in Italian, directed by Guiseppe
Patroni Griffi, starring Charlotte Rampling, Oliver Tobias, and Fabio
Testi, and 106 minutes in length.

And, speaking of camp, who could forget the Richard Burton/Elizabeth
Taylor *Dr. Faustus*?

Mike Jenson posted that, "Alex Cox has completed his film of *The
Revenger's Tragedy*, which had a screening in Liverpool earlier this
year.  It does not appear to have been released anywhere as yet, though
I shall be glad to be corrected about that."

This film was reviewed in DAILY VARIETY on Friday, August 16.  The
review said the film was shown at the Locarno Film Festival and at the
Edinburgh Film Festival.

However, there was no information about a general release.

The review said the film is "an ambitious, sometimes exhilarating, but
ultimately not very new attempt to unleash the power of great literature
past by punking it up."
