Subject:        Tim Curry as Shakespeare

I was in a library the other day and came across a Shakespeare biography
called, "Will Shakespeare, The Untold Story".  At first, I thought that
it was just another biography until I noticed the pictures in the middle
of the book.  Tim Curry played Shakespeare in what appears to have been
a British Television movie.  The book was published in 1977 but the
movie may be from the early 80's.  The book takes a little license with
the dates of the publication of the Sonnets and the events of Marlowe's
death, but it gives a wonderful feel to the backstage world and creates
a fully realized portrait of the man through his life.  Does anyone know
where I could get a copy of this film?
