"In discussing these productions, Willson pays special attention to cuts in the texts, casting decisions, and the actors' screen identities, directors' reputations and their previous films, and studio marketing strategies. Readers of Shakespeare in Hollywood will gain a better understanding of how studios attempted to make Shakespeare accessible to and respected by audiences with little or no knowledge of the plays. This goal foreshadowed efforts by such directors as Olivier and Branagh to bring the Bard to movie audiences."--BOOK JACKET.
