This revised American edition (with 34 more pages than the UK original) is an indispensable guide that includes not only films of Shakespeare's plays, but also filmed stage performances and films based on or inspired by his works. With world-wide coverage this work fills a gap of film literature and celebrates the 100th anniversary of the first known filmed work of the Bard.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Each listing offers a wealth of basic information and fascinating trivia: Shakespeare: A Hundred Years On Film is a "must-have" for any enthusiast of the immortal bard's work regardless of whether it is performed on screen or on stage. * Wisconsin Bookwatch *
Sammons' filmography is a valuable resource, compiling interesting facts about both well-known and obscure Shakespeare films. He examines pure adaptations of the plays, derivative films loosely based on the plays, opera and ballet versions, animated versions, films related to Shakespeare's life and times, films featuring scenes from plays, and films in which Shakespeare is quoted. For all but the latter, selective category, Sammons tries to include all known titles....While there are many Shakespeare filmographies, Sammons' may be the most comprehensive. * American Reference Books Annual *
The book's worth lies in its world-wide comprehensiveness...his research has been superb. -- Luke McKernan, Head of Information, British Universities Film and Video Council
