Facts about

Richard Burton asked John Gielgud to direct him in this production of Hamlet while they were filming Becket together.
This film belonged to a genre of films that began in the mid 60s that were actually stage productions filmed much like a television show, but for theater distribution. These films also included the heralded The T.A.M.I. Show and "TNT" (1966) rock concerts as well as the theatrical 2nd version of Harlow starring Carol Lynley.
The film was scheduled to be shown in cinemas for a week and then all copies were to be destroyed. Two prints survived. One was consigned to the BFI archives in London. Another print was found later in Richard Burton's estate after his death, which his widow allowed to be distributed as a DVD.
