Not only is this the worst interpretation ( OR LACK THEREOF ) of Shakespeare's classic , it also includes one of the worst performances by a great actor ever witnessed. The brilliant Jeremy Brett is so over the top its laughable. not since peter o'toole's henry higgin's has there been such a loud bellowing performance so devoid of human emotion. Piper Laurie is also awful as his Lady. it seems the production was put up in a matter of days for a "take the money and run.' pay check. UNINSPIRED WITH NO VISION IS THE BOTTOM LINE.
