Subject: 	Shakespeare on YouTube

I don't want to get us too deep into the YouTube thing here on SHAKSPER. 
  There's so much dross there surrounding the gold, and it's easy for 
list-members to search for themselves. But I was pleased when Charles 
Weinstein pointed out the wonderful Peter Sellers parody of Olivier as 
Richard III, and I hope folks enjoyed the silly Cat's Head Theatre clip 
of Hamlet vs Rosecrantz & Guidenstern.

So here are just two more YouTube URLs -- and never again. (Or VERY 
rarely...)

I had never seen this. It is a 1929 clip of John Barrymore as Richard 
III in a scene from Henry VI Part 3. Quite chilling. I do prefer 
Olivier's understatement of that final line to Barrymore's rather hammy 
reading-- but still...

Reveals a little-known aspect of Shakespeare's biography-- the Really 
Lost Years.

Enjoy,
Bill Lloyd
