(Svend Gade, 1920).
That Prince Hamlet was really a woman posing as a man is just one of the surprises of this silent production starring diva Asta Nielsen in one of the most intriguing screen adaptations of Shakespeare ever. Generally shown in black and white, this time around the film will be seen in a polychrome restoration. Piano accompaniment by the talented Donald Sosin.
