Movie Mash-Up

Recommended Posts

This story has seen 14 different versions made into movies. 6 were silent films,  at least 1 was a television-film and didn't air in theaters.  2 were French, one was Soviet, 1 was Danish, 1 was Italian, and the rest were US or UK versions(as far as I know.)

What do Mel Gibson and David Tennant have in common?

Pretty sure there have been more than 3 English versions of Hamlet. I know of 3 WITHOUT David Tennant [I don't know of any with him].


The answer was "HAMLET."


David Tennant was in the Royal Shakespeare Company version, with Tennant as Hamlet, and Claudius and old Hamlet played by Patrick Stewart.    It's a neat version with some interesting moments.  (When they catch a fleeing Hamlet, he's brought in, tied to a chair.  When Polonius recites his cliche festival at Laertes and Ophelia, at the end, both mouth what he's saying as he says it, as if they've heard it so many times they can recite it from memory.)

Of course, there was a Danish version because the story takes place in Denmark.
