Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: tvguide.com - entertainment.msn.com - rottentomatoes.com: «In this highly unusual film version of Shakespeare's play, Sir John Gielgud's 1964 stage production starring Richard Burton is filmed during a live performance on Broadway. Shot over two days at three successive performances with a live audience, the film was made using a variety of cameras capturing the action from different angles, which were later edited together into the finished film. Gielgud's production tells the story of the melancholy Danish prince using extremely simple scenery and with the actors dressed to look like they are wearing modern rehearsal clothing rather than finished costumes in order to give the production the feel of a final run-through rather than a lavishly appointed costume drama. The film is a fascinating record of the production and offers a rare chance to see one of Richard Burton's Shakespeare performances on film».
