Shakespeare's women are lovingly illuminated by the legendary actress Claire Bloom, who has played many of his heroines on the stage and the screen. The production interweaves film clips, such as Bloom playing Lady Anne to Laurence Olivier's Richard III in the 1955 film, with soliloquies Bloom performs for the camera. Brought to life are Juliet, Ophelia from Hamlet, Portia from The Merchant Of Venice, Rosalind from As You Like It, among other roles. Altogether, a splendid scrapbook of film and stage interpretations of Shakespeare's works over the past half century.
