Romeo and Juliet - 1965

Romeo and Juliet - 1965

"There were plans to do "Romeo and Juliet" with Dick Barthelmess in Italy using the original locations, but, following our announcement, letters from the exhibitors begged reconsideration saying Mr. Shakespeare emptied their theaters. By the time I finally succeded in appearing in this play at the American Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Connecticut, I was playing the Nurse." (Dorothy and Lillian Gish - By Lillian Gish)
