Many photographs of actors associated with this production and previous Hamlets, such as John Barrymore, Alec Guinness, Laurence Olivier, Peter O'Toole, Michael Redgrave, Paul Scofield, and John Gielgud himself. Richard Burton headlined this production, and there are two pages focusing on him, two more pages focusing on Gielgud during the rehearsal, and two pages of photographs from the production itself, which, according to Gielgud's introduction, was intended to be a "final rehearsal" without the trappings of costumes and scenery. Gielgud's brief essay may be the most interesting contribution here for the Shakespearean scholar and fan. Illus. by Photographs. Additional photos available upon request. All items carefully packed to avoid damage from moisture and rough handling. Sku: 038027
