"From the Globe to the multiplex, this exhaustive study leaves no stone unturned." ( Kirkus Reviews ) William Shakespeare is currently enjoying his most glorious and popular success since the golden days of the Globe Theatre-on Hollywood's silver screen. Here, in one volume, is a comprehensive and entertaining study of the many memorable film versions of Shakespeare's timeless plays. Arranged in the order the plays were written, this extremely readable guide allows readers to follow Shakespeare's development as a playwright (and screenwriter), and to compare the filmed versions of the play side by side. From the cinematic thrills of Kenneth Branagh's star-studded movies, to alternate adaptations like West Side Story , to the recent blockbuster success of Shakespeare in Love , the book will delight film lovers and Bard fans alike.
