Comment:   Re: SHK 20.0078 Shakespeare by Heart

Marlon Brando, shockingly, in one of his last appearances on Larry King, 
recited Richard II's speech on the death of kings by heart. He never 
played it, nor would he have any reason to know that speech other than a 
personal devotion, and familiarity with, Shakespeare's works. It was a 
jaw-dropping moment.

Will Sutton is also jaw-dropping. He has completely ingested the 
Sonnets, literally backwards and forwards, i.e. he can recite them in 
any way that you can challenge him on them.
