  • A copy of Hamlet at Elsinore annamarie_bayley 2 March 2005 I am looking for a copy of Christopher Plummer as Hamlet at Elsinore, my aunt watched it when it was shown on TV in the UK in 1964, and said it was the best version of Hamlet she had seen. I am studying at drama school, and very interested in obtaining a copy for her and myself. It ...

  • HAMLET AT ELSINORE. TV movie, BBC, 15 November 1964. Christopher Plummer, Robert Shaw, Alec Clunes, Michael Caine, June Tobin, Jo Maxwell Muller, Dyson Lovell. Based on the play by William Shakespeare. Director: Philip Saville. Quite well done, with some understandable echoes of John Barrymore in ...

  • Hamlet famously tells his mother that he is cruel only to be kind. Mr. Gold’s production is disrespectful only out of a profound and deeply humane respect. It’s an attitude that pumps gusty air into the musty corridors of the royal castle at Elsinore. And the show’s intimidating four hours pass as quickly as a night at a bar with some of ...

  • Being a native Dane, it is a special thrill for me to see a Hamlet adaptation actually shot at Kronborg Castle in Elsinore – a castle that was newly built in Shakespeare’s day, and has an entire church built into it. I have been to the castle several times, so I recognize the halls, the […]

  • Hamlet at Elsinore is a 1964 television version of Shakespeare's play. Produced by the BBC in association with Danish Radio, it was shown in the U.S. on NET.Winning wide acclaim both for its performances and for being shot entirely at Helsingør (Elsinore in English), in the castle in which the play is set, it is the only version (with sound) of the play to have actually been shot at Elsinore ...

  • Elsinore in Denmark, Hamlet’s ‘Home,’ Is Having a Renaissance. Image. Kronborg Castle was the setting for “Hamlet.” Credit Linus Sundahl-Djerf for The New York Times. By Seth Sherwood. July 30, 2015; One afternoon last fall, I walked along the North Sea coast in search of a ghost. Admittedly, the bucolic spot felt incongruously cheerful for a paranormal encounter. A low sun splayed ...

  • In the case of Hamlet, there is no sense of Elsinore as a place of eavesdropping corruption, no hint of reckless sensuality in the relationship of Claudius and Gertrude, no awareness that Polonius is a wily politician rather than a prattling buffoon.

  • Which is the best Hamlet movie? Here are my assessments of the film adaptations of Hamlet I've seen in order of personal preference. "Have at you now!" 1. Kenneth Branagh: Hamlet 1996. Branagh’s performance swings wildly between Hamlet’s famous indecision and the Danish prince’s other signature (but often overlooked) characteristic: his recklessness.

  • Back at Elsinore, Hamlet explains to Horatio that he had discovered Claudius's letter with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern's belongings and replaced it with a forged copy indicating that his former friends should be killed instead. ...
