| One of the best things ever broadcast. If only available on DVD!
My wife & I saw Fool's Fire when originally broadcast on PBS. We were totally blown away. Talk about fresh & original. Quite a coup for Julie Taymor, who is more noted these days for the Broadway production of "The Lion King".

Having Michael Anderson (one of David Lynch's favorite actors) cast as the court jester, Hop Frog, while casting all the "normal" characters of the court with puppets was amazing. This is one of the most human stories. More pathos than the original E.A. Poe story, without loosing any of the original's impact.

With Julie Taymor's success with "Titus", there should be an enterprising soul willing to put this production out on DVD, where it can get the audience it deserves.

Is anyone listening?
