Hear! Hear! (pun wasn't originally intended, but what the heck! ;-) ) I totally agree! Back when I was in high school, we were shown a filmed verion of the stage play of Hamlet with Richard Burton. (that is, the play was done in a theater and the camera was set up there to film what was happening on the stage). It's now almost 40 years later and I _still_ remember some of the scenes! We also learned, from texts, other of S's plays and I don't even remember which plays they were! Sorta says something!
