I remember a Public Television brochure about this series (I still have it somewhere). I never saw it, and at the age of 13, wouldn't have appreciated it. Fifty-six years later, I find myself less-than-impressed with the actors' tendency to rush through their lines, as if merely speaking Shakespeare were enough to convey his meaning. American actors tend to treat Bill more respectfully. WilliamSommerwerck (talk) 16:10, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
