Hamlet (1959 film)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Based onHamlet by William Shakespeare

Distributed byAustralian Broadcasting Corporation (Australia)
Release date

Hamlet is a 1959 Australian TV play starring William Job and produced by Royston Morley.[2][3]

It was one of two notable productions of Shakespeare transmitted by ABC, the other being Anthony and Cleopatra.[1]


  • William Job as Hamlet,
  • Henry Gilbert as the King,
  • Georgie Sterling as the Queen,
  • Owen Weingott as Laertes,
  • Delia William as Ophelia
  • Gordon Glenwright as the gravedigger


The production was well received.[4]

A critic from the Sydney Morning Herald said that it "proved that Shakespeare can be successfully translated to television" with Morley's direction responsible for "much of the credit... he kept the field of action small, relying on _closeups to intensify the drama. I also thought that William Job's portrayal of the young and tragic Dane was outstanding."[5]

It was repeated in 1964.[6]
