A late word on Rom from Alec Guinness, A Positively Final Appearance:
"Shakespeare's Birthday, 23 April; he would be four hundred and
thirty-three today so I greeted him by going to the Odeon, Marble Arch,
to see Baz Luhrmann's film William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.  I
enjoyed it a lot and I find my mind keeps returning to its images and
ideas, but I regret the title.  'Rom and Jule' or 'Eo and let' or 'Cut
him out in little stars' or 'A word and a blow' or 'Peppered for this
world' would all be extravagant but possible titles, and more
justifiable" (16).
