Ian McKellen gives a tour-de-force performance as Shakespeare's tragic titular monarch in this special television adaptation of the Royal Shakespeare Company production of one the playwright's most enduring and haunting works.
The complete Shakespeare set is now available at Amazon UK for a fairly low price of about $250 - depending upon exchange rates. Note the price they quote is NOT the price you pay, since it includes VAT. Shipping is only a few pounds, and takes less than a week. The amazing set includes ALL 37 plays in a compact box.
The only SLIGHT problem is that it's REGION 2 encoded.
To get around that problem, go to your favorite auction web site, and search for multi-region code free.
There, you should find sales of instructions on how to convert MOST DVD players to region-free players -fairly simply, as part of setup.
If for some reason, your player is not included in the list then consider picking up an inexpensive one -I managed to get one for $30, including shipping.
