Plot summary: The Queen's new marriage is threatened by her mentally unstable son.
Absolutely spectacular. The choreography for the sword fight was incredibly intense- even more so if you consider the era in which this was made.
Now I'm off to see Burton's version.
So was the play really 5 hours?
Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet (1996) which contains every word runs to four hours.
And the 1938/9 Broadway season's first uncut Hamlet, ran for four and a half hours.
