And of course, Joan Plowright, his third wife, introduces a clip of
Olivier's Hamlet in Last Action Hero, remarking that the school children
might remember him from "Clash of the Titans"

Just a brief correction there: it's Julian Glover who played Henry, not
Brian. Incidentally, in the BBC recording, married couple Timothy West
and Prunella Scales appear as Falstaff and Mistress Quickly, who aren't
an item in the play *exactly*, but close enough! Along similar lines,
West has also played Falstaff opposite his son Samuel as Prince Hal,
though I don't remember the details of the production offhand...

Regards,
Lea

Sorry:  I confused my Glovers.  (Thanks to Stuart Manger for pointing
this out).  *Julian* and Jamie are the father and son who played King
Henry and Hal.  Brian Glover has done Shakespeare--he played Bottom in
the BBC Midsummer--but he doesn't look a thing like Julian and he hasn't
a son named Jamie.
