Maggie Smith at her finest!
20 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I was very little, I usually couldn't sleep so I would sneak out and watch television. One late night, I found this on PBS and was instantly mesmerized. Not just because it was my first full-fledged foray into the world of Shakespeare, but because Maggie Smith's performance was so incredible. Her ability to convey delicate femininity as Portia and sturdy masculinity in her male guise, was incredible. I watched every airing PBS had left of it, I was so taken. To this day, I credit having seen that performance as one of the key reasons I wanted to be an actor when I grew up. If you can find it... watch it. If you enjoy Maggie Smith's breadth of work, you will love this gem.
