Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sir John Gielgud made this role his own and had by 1951 become the stage Hamlet of the century. This production he both adapted and directed, his clarity, stillness and economy fo style still amazing to audiences after 25 years and brilliantly delivering Hamlet the Prince as well as the poet and dreamer. It is one of Gielgud's greatest and most lyrical performances. This NBC production has a magnificent cast, including Pamela Brown, Dorothy McGuire, Barry Kroeger, John Merivale, Peter Bull and Esmé Percy. Booklet notes are by Sheridan Morley. The latest release in the 'Plays and Poets' series. Sir John Gielgud made this role his own and had by 1951 become the stage Hamlet of the century.
