Othello

Jonathan Miller, 1934-, Anthony Hopkins, 1937-, Bob Hoskins

Streaming video - 1981

This production is part of a famous series produced by BBC of all of William Shakespeare's plays. The resulting films, renowned for their loyalty to the text, utilized the best theatrical and television directors and brought highly praised performances from leading contemporary actors. Jealousy in love is one of the most common of human emotions. In OTHELLO, Shakespeare combines this universal theme with perfectly structured scenes, a storyline that lingers in the memory and a prime example... of a tragic hero, Othello himself. The result is perhaps his greatest triumph as a stage play. When the evil Iago plants the seeds of doubt in Othello's mind about Desdemona's fidelity, audiences around the world have been held spellbound.
