Summary note: Sir John Gielgud's portrayal of Hamlet is the hallmark of all Hamlets. This remarkable recording captures one of his finest performances. The passion, mental turmoil, and frustration are vividly portrayed, both intensely moving and disturbing. Gielgud's performance is touched by wit and moments of comic brilliance. His masterful command of Shakespeare's poetry flows effortlessly; he becomes Hamlet.
