Randy Fischer presents Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT 1936

A duke usurps his brother's land and power, banishing him and his retinue into the forest of Arden. The banished duke's daughter, Rosalind, remains with her cousin Celia. She has fallen in love with Orlando, but he has his own tyrannical brother to contend with, so he joins those in the forest. Rosalind, now banished, disguises herself as a young man, with Celia as her servant, and follows Orlando into the forest. There, nature stirs love's fires in various rustics as well as in those from the court. Phebe, a shepherdess loved by Silvius, is herself smitten with the disguised Rosalind. Can true love find a way, and can brothers be reconciled and harmony restored?

 This 1936 British film stars Elizabeth Bergner and a very young Laurence Olivier.  This film is presented as part of Randy Fischer's Literature-to-Film Series.

Former film critic for National Public Radio Randy Fischer will introduce the film.

Vintage film prints will be screened.

    Interesting tidbits about Randy's brushes with celebrities.....Film not one of my favorites, but fun. I had forgotten how handsome Lawrence Olivier was as a young man! Having seen him in so many newer movies looking like
    the Evil Nazi in Marathon Man, I had forgotten how "pretty" he was at one
    time.....Yeap, the star's German/Austo/Hungarian accent was a bit distracting, and for me personally hard to follow....Also, Chris, KUDOS for the new great ceiling!
