King Lear - 1982 - aka The Tragedy of King Lear - Mike Kellen, Kitty Winn, Charles Hickman, Alan Cooke - RARE $28.99US

Too big for the stage? Shakespeare's tragedy of mistaken love, deceit, betrayal, jealousy and murder, King Lear centres on the aging monarch of Britain, who decides to divide his kingdom among his three daughters, Goneril, Regan and Cordelia, determined by their expressions of love for him. Cordelia, of a frank and spiritual nature, makes no such declaration and is disinherited. It later becomes evident that her love was greater than all, expressed in actions and not mere words. Having relinquished his throne, Lear becomes the object of ridicule and betrayal by Goneril and Regan, climaxing in the murder of Cordelia and the tragic death of Lear unable to contain his grief.

Cast: Mike Kellen, Daryl Hickman, Charles Aidman, & Kitty Winn.

Directed by Alan Cooke
Produced by Jack Nakano
Runtime: 182 mins (approx)

Rated NC-17. Sadistic violence, and pants on fire

Possibly the greatest work ever written in the English language. Note that Kitty Winn is playing a vastly different part than as Helen in The Panic in Needle Park with Al Pacino.
