Deliberately staged in the style of a "dress rehearsal", Richard Burton's HAMLET was recorded and performed in front of a live audience. You can now stream the production right here.

The filmed performance was created by recording three live performances from June 30th to July 1st, using a process called "Electronovision" at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.

By contractual agreement, all prints of the filmed performance were to have been destroyed after its original theatrical run. However, a single print was discovered in Burton's garage following his death, with his widow allowing it to be distributed for home distribution. 

Howard Taubman of The New York Times called it "a performance of electrical power and sweeping virility", noting that he had never known or seen "a Hamlet of such tempestuous manliness"
