This Saturday: SHAKESPEARE: All the World’s a Screen

Screen adaptations of the works of William Shakespeare have a long and varied history, dating back to 1900 and a production of “Hamlet” starring a one-legged Sarah Bernhardt. According to the "Guinness Book of Records", Shakespeare is the most-filmed author in any language, with more than 500 feature-length film & TV versions of his plays as of 2019, and more are always on the way. Some adaptations are faithful to Will’s stories and texts while others make use only of the plots, altering the dialogue to fit new eras and settings. Whatever their circumstance, each adaptation is a testament to the universality and timelessness of Shakespeare’s themes (not to mention his Public Domain status).
