Shakespeare on Film

Below is a list of feature-length films of Shakespeare's works that I might use to teach Shakespeare.

Students will find links below to many versions to watch while reading plays. Films help not just to see the performance and to ease into comfort with the language, but also to explore comparisons like this. I have tried to include most recent film productions. Not all films on this list, however, will be a help the first or even second time through a play. Some are complete revisions, and some only contain isolated scenes or allusions. Not all are necessarily great.

⭑ I have starred versions that work well for a first encounter with a play. I am sure many others work well too: these are not the "best of," but just a start, and I have only starred versions that I have as yet seen. Aside from those I have starred, it seems hard to go wrong with the generally excellent RSC and GLOBE series.

—I do not include teaching aids, or films of actors' studios, or other pedagogical films. There are no biographies. I include no films of operas or ballets, though there are many of these. I include a few musicals. I do not include shorts, or half-hour tv shows, though these are out there. I only include a few of the most famous or readily available silent films. I only include a few productions filmed in languages other than English.

—Where can you view them? Standard streaming services, such as Amazon Prime, are the place to start. Amazon includes the BBC and Stratford Festival series, for instance, and some that don't seem to be on DVD (such as the Globe performance of Measure for Measure with Mark Rylance). Library subscription services such as Digital Theatre Plus and the Films Media Group have many, along with others on Shakespeare's life, language, plays, and culture. The Internet Archive contains some silent films. Global Shakespeares provides "online access to performances of Shakespeare from many parts of the world as well as essays and metadata provided by scholars and educators in the field." The BBC series can also be streamed from Ambrose Video. Links below connect to these and other sites.

—Where are other and fuller lists? The Shakespeare in Performance Database on Internet Shakespeare Editions is one of the most complete. The Library of Congress' list Shakespeare on Film and Television includes productions from the U.S. and Britain and further abroad. A search for "Shakespeare" on the IMDB turns up an enormous number of films not on this list, especially in languages other than English. Wikipedia has a relevant entry. Some books contain filmographies, including Shakespeare and the Moving Image (1994), A History of Shakespeare on Screen (2004), the The Cambridge Companion to Shakspeare on Film (2007), Shakespeare on Silent Film: An Excellent Dumb Discourse (2009), and Shakespeare on Film (2014). For recent films, the Movie Review Query Engine can help to find multiple reviews.



Many older productions have been digitized and published in series, and over the past decade the RSC and Globe and Stratford Festival have produced an increasing number of their performances for video. To see all of this a bit more clearly, I have tagged plays published as parts of these series:

Films with or about more than one play:

  • Silent Shakespeare (2000): This DVD contains seven films: King John (1898), The Tempest (1908), and Richard II (1911) are British productions; Re Lear (1910) and Il Mercante de Venezia (1910) are Italian productions; and A Midsummer Night's Dream (1909) and Twelfth Night (1910) are American productions.
  • Play On! Shakespeare in Silent Film (2016): a concert with 25 silent films shown by the Globe in 2016.
  • Shakespeare Wallah (1965; dir. James Ivory and Ismail Merchant; perf. Shashi Kapoor, Geoffrey Kendal, Felicity Kendal)
  • The Reduced Shakespeare Company: The Complete Works of Shakespeare, Abridged (2000; dir. Paul Kafno)

Films of the Plays

The plays are listed in the approximate order in which he wrote them. Films under each play are also listed chronologically. There are 38 extant plays. (I recommend Stephen Greenblatt, gen. ed., The Norton Shakespeare as a current, complete, and clear introduction to his life and work). The list shows 35 because I have combined the Henry VI and Henry IV sequences that are so often filmed together.
