Staged in rehearsal room and modern dress conditions, this is Richard Burton's performance as Hamlet. This play opened on Broadway April 9, 1964. This recording is not derived from a film, but from an attempt to simply record the stage show for one cinematic showing by placing cameras in the stalls during an actual performance.

(*Hamlet quote*) - "To be, or not to be... That is the question."

Directed by John Gielgud - This 1964 production of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet" took place at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in NYC.

At a 3-hour running time - This particular version of "Hamlet" is presented as if it were a full final rehearsal of the play where everything is played straight through without any costumes or scenery.

This adaptation of Shakespeare's famous period drama starred a 40-year-old Richard Burton in the title role. It was filmed in stark b&w.
