PG-13 | | Drama
Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, returns home to find his father murdered and his mother remarrying the murderer, his uncle. Meanwhile, war is brewing.
Part of the movie was shot at Blenheim Palace, which is owned by the Duke Of Marlborough. The then-Duke John Spencer-Churchill had a very small role in the movie as Fortinbras' General.
A little more than kin and less than kind.
When Hamlet and Polonius are walking down a hallway discussing Hamlet's sanity, in one shot Hamlet is holding a skull mask, and in the next it's gone.
The shorter, 135 minute version omits the appearances of the English Ambassador (Richard Attenborough), Priam (John Gielgud), Hecuba (Judi Dench), and Reynaldo (Gerard Depardieu).
