I was in my teens in India and had just graduated with an overseas school certificate awarded by the Cambridge University. One of my favorite subjects was English literature and I had avidly consumed many of Shakespeare's plays while at school. It was a treat to watch this movie because I could enjoy Shakespearean stage recitation on screen by the likes of Richard Burton and Raymond Massey. What a treat that was. I was talking about the great histrionics of these actors long after I had seen the movie.Before this movie I had no idea John Wilkes Booth came from such an illustrious family.I hated that character more after I learned it. It is now 50 years since I saw this gem of a film and badly want to see it but where can I get a copy of it to view. I hope someone who reads this can contact me.
