Foreign Screen Version of "Hamlet" To Get Premier -- November 15, 2021

Exhibitors Herald, 05-November-1921

Asta Nielsen was a great star from Denmark. Her German production of Hamlet featured her as a princess pretending to be a prince, Hamlet. Asta Nielsen was inspired by a book published in 1886 by Edward P Vining, The Mystery of Hamlet. I remember a professor at San Francisco State ridiculing the idea.
