Comment:        Re: SHK 13.1597 Re: British Culture and Shakespeare

The Last Action Hero sequence involving Joan Plowright and Olivier's
Hamlet suggests a somewhat different narrative than John's, one that
calls both Shakespeare's and the performer's high culture status into
question by the mediatization of Shakespeare in film.  Plowright, you
will recall, introduces the film and Olivier to the students by telling
them they may have seen him Clash of the Titans or Polaroid
commercials.  The (in)joke depends on the viewer
