To all who said they had ordered Branagh's "Hamlet":

Did you order the 4 hour version? If so, for what price and from whom?
I saw an article in a Baker & Taylor VideoAlert (Oct. or Nov.?) that said
it was only being released on video in a cut version (2 1/2 hours long)
and at that time the price was still very high ($99.00+). Please tell me
that the full 4 hour version was realesed on video and at a lower price?!

I had not ordered it yet because of the price and was very disappointed
that it was only going to be available in the cut version. I await your
responses with baited breath (and a purchase order on hold!).
