Shakespeare on Screen

Daniel Rosenthal, Author Hamlyn (UK) $29.95 (208p) ISBN 978-0-600-60115-9
Miramax chief Harvey Weinstein was afraid the title of Shakespeare in Love would be too hifalutin for a mass audience. But he'd underestimated movie audiences' great love for the bard, both in traditional productions featuring Laurence Olivier, Kenneth Branagh and Franco Zeffirelli and in modern reinterpretations, such as 10 Things I Hate About You (based on The Taming of the Shrew) and William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. These are just a few of intriguing tidbits in British film journalist Daniel Rosenthal's exploration of Shakespeare on Screen, which is loaded with commentary, criticism, in-depth profiles (of actors and directors like John Gielgud and Akira Kurosawa) and full-color photography. Agent, Laura Morris. ( Mar.)
