    Is this likely to be the best/cheapest version of this film I can expect on DVD?

    I reckon that it will be the best edition we will ever see. The transfer used for the DVD was the same one used for Criterion's Laserdisc.

    From Criterion's website:



    Coincidentally, I considering ordering this DVD yesterday. I love the play and Olivier's film. The legendary monologue is brilliant delivered by Larry. I am definately going to pick up Richard III soon and will probably order Hamlet, too.
