Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1732 Olivier's Richard III on DVD

I've spoken to the folks at Criterion.  Apparently there are a number of
websites which have incorrectly given November 11 as the release date
for Olivier's Richard III.  It will be released in the spring of 2004.

Also, the Branagh Hamlet DVD is still slated for spring 2004 as well,
but I am told by Branagh's offices that the release will most likely
*not* include a director's commentary or extensive extras.  There is
still hope for an extended special edition later on, though the
specifics of that project are yet to be hammered out.
