I, Hamlet (Italian: Io, Amleto) is a 1952 Italian comedy film directed by Giorgio Simonelli and starring Erminio Macario, Franca Marzi and Rossana Podestà. A parody of William Shakespeare's tragedy Hamlet,[1][2] its lack of commercial success led the newly formed production company Macario Film to a rapid bankruptcy.[3]

The film's sets were designed by the art directors Arrigo Breschi and Saverio D'Eugenio. It was shot at the Palatino Studios in Rome.
