I don't think there has been a Shakespeare play that has not been turned into a film at least once. Which do you think is the best one?

I like the films that are set in the correct period. I don't like the ones that have been updated to modern times like the Romeo and Juliet starring Leonardo DiCaprio or the Hamlet starring David Tennant. My favourite is the 1996 film of Hamlet starring Kenneth Brannah, but I also like the 1999 Midsummer Night's Dream directed Michael Hoffman.

I love The Taming of the Shrew 1967.
by Franco Zeffirelli.

Real husband and wife team.
Richard Burton & Elizabeth Taylor...........man.... what a combination!
The Richard III a few years back with Ian McKellan. That opening scen was awesome....
None, I was made to study Shakespeare at school, and have hated it ever since!

That's a shame for you, Finy.
It was part of my school curriculum also, but I loved it, & still do!
If play on, will go see, especially if 'Bell Shakespeare Theatre'!

Romeo & Juliet
'Romeo & Juliet' with Olivia Hussey & Leonard Whiting.
'Hamet', (Sir) Kenneth Branagh's version.
'Macbeth', Roman Polanski's version.

Just L O V E Shakespeare to the nth degree! Found it quite easy to study & still do now, as it's a hobby!
