Product Overview

HAMLET: Hamlet has the kind of power energy and excitement that movies can truly exploit award-winning actor/director Kenneth Branagh says. In this first-ever full-text film of William Shakespeare s greatest work the power surges through every scene. The timeless tale of murder corruption and revenge is reset in an opulent 19th-century world using sprawling Blenheim Palace as Elsinore and staging much of the action in shimmering mirrored and gold-filled interiors. The energy is electrifying due to a luminous cast. The excitement of the Bard s words and an adventurous filmmaking style lift the story from its often shadowy ambience to fully-lit pageantry and rage. Now presented in an amazing 2-Disc Special Edition. ROMEO & JULIET: Norma Shearer and Leslie Howard in the title roles are so good that one can forget they are too old for the roles (Leonard Maltin s Movie Guide). Adding to this allure of this nominee for four Academy Awards?* including Best Picture are lavish sets and costumes (Botticelli paintings inspired Shearer s wardrobe) that fuel the film s then-astonishing $2-million budget. OTHELLO: The original cast and soul-shattering impact of the play s 1964 staging by the National Theatre of Great Britain are captured on film. As the valiant war hero swept into a maelstrom of jealousy and revenge Olivier won his seventh Academy Award? nomination.* The movie s Desdemona (Maggie Smith) Emilia (Joyce Redman) and honest Iago (Frank Finlay) also captured Oscar? nominations. And the result Bosley Crowther wrote in The New York Times is that this Othello is one of the boldest you ll ever see. A MIDSUMMER NIGHT S DREAM: Love is blind fickle and true. And under the sway of capricious fairies it becomes blinder (a queen romances a donkey) more fickle (best friends swoon over each other s beau) and truest of all (lovers repledge their devotion). Lord what fools these mortals be! in Shakespeare s bewitching comedy. James Cagney screen-d. Actors: Kenneth Branagh Lauren
