Somebody's badly screwed up here. This adaptation has been confused with Kenneth Branagh's 1988 TV version: http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0324342/
The posters shown at the top are for the Branagh production. There are even reviews of the Branagh production on this page. The Amazon link takes you to a page for the DVD of the Branagh production: the Armfield film isn't out on DVD. Please be wary: these are two different adaptations!
I'd love to see the Armfield version if anybody can get me a copy; if you have one to sell, please PM me! For anyone who hasn't seen Branagh's Twelfth Night, I can recommend it: it's one of the best versions I've seen. Branagh has said he'd like to adapt Twelfth Night for the big screen some day; here's hoping he does.
