Hi Lucy,

The 1996 242-min. (uncut) version of "Hamlet" will be released at
sell-thru ($29.95) on Mar. 3rd. The *1969* version with Anthony
Hopkins will also be re-released (119 min.) at $19.95. And as long as
I have the press release info in front of me: Cromwell is also part
of the promotion ($19.95). Should be widely available...
