Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Derek Jacobi who plays Claudius in this film, played Hamlet in Hamlet, Prince of Denmark (1980) (TV). He admitted that he had some difficulty with the role of Claudius as he kept thinking Hamlet's lines. Simon Russell Beale has also played Hamlet on stage.
  • Star/Director Kenneth Branagh first encountered the 'full length' version of the play while performing in the 1992 BBC Radio production of the play with co-stars Derek Jacobi and Richard Briers (who would reprise their roles as Claudius and Polonius respectively in the film). This radio performance anticipated the winter 1992 full text production of Hamlet by the Royal Shakespeare company - the one that would finally crystallize Branagh's interpretation of the character and lead to the film.
  • Hugh Crumwell was the then-principal of the RADA in which Kenneth Branagh studied. Crumwell was on the set all the time; he came as a request by Branagh to give an objective critique for the performance of each take.
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): In the very long shot along the length of the throne room, the cameras are visible in the mirrors.
