Trivia

In 1976 several of the (by then quite elderly) costumes from the film were rented for the Doctor Who (1963) story "The Masque of Mandragora" - to the slight disappointment of its costume designer James Acheson, who had been expecting to hire Danilo Donati's designs from Romeo and Juliet (1968), and who only discovered the mistake on visiting the costume house in Rome.

The best Film of Romeo and Juliet ever made.
28 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this film as a child of 10 or ll. I loved it. I was able to see it again a few years ago, thinking that maybe it would not have the same appeal as when I was a child, but I loved it again, only more appreciatively so. The casting was brilliant and modern versions of this film bear no comparison. I do wish I could obtain it on DVD so my grandchildren could watch it. Apart from anything else, it featured the wonderful actors and actresses of that era who deserved to be remembered. It made an impression on a young child and encouraged further interest and research into the works of Shakespeare. This version of the film is, in my opinion the best interpretation of the author's original play.
