Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Mel Gibson's only previous Shakespearan experience was playing Juliet in an all male production of "Romeo and Juliet" in Australia. By contrast, Alan Bates (who played Claudius) had played Hamlet in London in 1970 and Paul Scofield (who played the Ghost) had played the part in 1948 and 1955 and is considered one of the greatest twentieth century interpreters of the role.
  • This was the first Shakespearean role that Glenn Close had ever attempted on either stage or screen.
  • Glenn Close who plays Gertrude, Hamlet mother is only nine years older than her on-screen son.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): The hole in the curtain when Polonius is stabbed.
