Subject: 	Useful Reference Files for SHAKSPER Website

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

As I was editing the last digest - Films of Non-Shakespearean Plays - I 
thought that it might be useful if someone were to volunteer to compile 
the non-Shakespearean films mentioned in that 
                                 digest for mounting on the SHAKSPER 
Website on the Reference Files page: 

I have recently updated a list that I have complied for my graduate 
class "Shakespeare in Performance on Film and Television." The file 
lists upwards to 95% of all Shakespeare productions realized for the 
cinema and for television, as well as films of live stage productions, 
that are currently available on DVD or that I have transferred to DVD 
from VHS. I include director, country of origin, year, length of film, 
major stars, and a sentence or two of comments. I compiled this list 
with the help of the information from the Poor Yorick site, from Ken 
Rothwell's <I>A History of Shakespeare on Screen</I>, and from the 
information included with the DVD. I also have a separate list of The 
BBC Television Shakespeare, Silent Shakespeares, and a highly selected 
list of adaptations. I will also mount these files on the website if 
members think they would be useful.

If you have an interest, please send me a private e-mail.
