Summary
"Unlike previous studies of Shakespeare's cinematic history, Shakespeare in the Movies proceeds chronologically, in the order that the plays were written, allowing the reader to trace the development of Shakespeare as an author - and an auteur - and to see how the changing cultural climate of the Elizabethans flowered into film centuries later. Douglas Brode provides historical background, production details, contemporary critical reactions, and his own incisive analysis, covering everything from the acting of Marlon Brando, Laurence Olivier, Richard Burton, and Gwyneth Paltrow, to the direction of Orson Welles, Kenneth Branagh, and others. Brode also considers the many films that, though not strict adaptations, contain significant Shakespearean content, such as West Side Story and Kurosawa's Ran and Throne of Blood. And Brode does not ignore the ignoble treatment the master has sometimes received. We learn, for instance, that the 1929 version of The Taming of the Shrew (which featured the eyebrow-raising writing credit: "By William Shakespeare, with additional dialogue by Sam Taylor") opens not so trippingly on the tongue - PETRUCHIO: "Howdy Kate." KATE: "Katherine to you, mug."" "For anyone wishing to cast a backward glance over the poet's film career and to understand his current big-screen popularity better, Shakespeare in the Movies is a definitive guide."--Jacket
