So I'm watching Slings and Arrows this week, finally, after a coworker let me borrow the DVD. In Episode 1, a character speaks of Richard Burton's Hamlet as the best one.
To me, growing up, Richard Burton was the guy in boring movies on Sunday afternoons after church. The sort of movies that a 12yr old boy like myself would find crazy boring and not watch. I know Burton's Taming of the Shrew because I saw it in school, but that's about it. Never saw his Antony. I see that he played Caliban, which intrigues me. His Hamlet was in 1964.
So, tell me. Is it that good? Should I seek it out? Is it available on film? IMDB tells me that there is a DVD release, although that doesn't mean I'd be able to find it.
