Longest Class Ever

I meant to show the 2000 version of Hamlet starring Ethan Hawke tonight but I couldn't hook up my DVD player and had to show the 1948 Olivier version. The older version cuts out more material (the entire Rosencrantz and Guildenstern subplot is dropped) but runs for nearly 45 minutes longer. Class was 20 minutes late in getting out.

The only other time I kept a class more than a few minutes in overtime was the first time I showed the Olivier version. I think I'll show Mel Gibson's next quarter.
