Subject: King Leer in Remake of The Producers
I saw the trailer today. The film kept the King Leer joke in the stage
adaptation of Mel Brooks film. Several shots show a poster for King
Leer. I saw a trailer for another trailer for a film starring Judi
Dench entitled Mrs. Henderson Presents. The film is set in London
during WWII and focuses on negotiations with the censor to allow nudity
on stage. The trailer made no mention of Shakespeare but the film may well.
Though unrelated to Shakespeare, the new Pride and Prejudice film, which
I also saw today, is brilliant and well worth seeing.
