And -- news flash -- the other plays have their anachronisms and historical inaccuracies (and in some cases deliberately misleading portrayals) also. Expecting to learn history from Shakespeare is like expecting to learn physics from Star Wars. That's not what it's for.
Indeed. And on that note, I recommend the play “Equivocation” by Bill Cain.Captain Ned wrote:When you're writing plays for the approval of Good Queen Bess the First, one accepts the Royal revisions and keeps one's festering gob shut.
Any movie that features a de Havilland Dragon Rapide is going to be a favorite of mine. But I'm a sucker for stylized, modernized Shakespeare: I quite enjoyed the Luhrmann "Romeo + Juliet" even though I'm not really a fan of either of the two lead actors. I even liked "Scotland PA" (though anything that features Christopher Walken already has a finger on the scale)I've seen the McKellen fascist version and I don't like.
