Mabs Voice: a Richardson speciality
An entertaining and idiosyncratic adaption of the fable.
I thought though I would enter this information about this movie into the record while I still remember it.
At the time of the film's first showing on British television, the Guardian's TV critic described Marianda Richardson's Queen Mab as a cross between "Siouxsie Sioux and the Grim Reaper".
Richardson herself said she wanted to project menace through her voice while keeping her volume down to almost a whisper; a cold rasp in fact, like a poorly oiled door hinge.
Whatever it was, her portrayal was wonderful to behold and altogether priceless.
