GIVEAWAY: King Lear!

2/26/2010 Posted by Admin

Week in Rewind is pleased to offer a giveaway of King Lear!

Own it on DVD on Now!

Thanks to our friends at E1 Entertainment for this opportunity!


Product description: "Shot live for the prestigious OMNIBUS Series, Orson Welles (Citizen Kane, Touch of Evil, The Third Man), made his dramatic television debut in OMNIBUS: KING LEAR as the beleaguered king betrayed by the greed of his daughters. This legendary performance is presented newly restored and re-mastered in the first authorized release since its original CBS live telecast on October 11, 1953.

Masterfully playing the title role in Peter Brook’s groundbreaking production of Shakespeare’s classic play, Welles is supported by an all-star cast featuring Alan Badel (“Shogun”, The Day of the Jackal), Beatrice Straight (Network, Poltergeist) and Bramwell Fletcher (The Mummy, The Scarlet Pimpernel). The milestone DVD features over 90 minutes of Shakespeare-related bonus performances including interviews/rehearsal footage with Brook and Virgil Thomson, demonstrations/ discussions of scenes from Hamlet with Walter Kerr, and reports from the Yale University Shakespeare Festival by Alistair Cooke, and also contains a 16-page booklet with written contributions by the director Brook and the Orson Welles biographer Simon Callow."

The contest will end on April 27, 2010.

We are giving away THREE copies.
