Some Zeffirelli Love

http://www.nerve.com/CS/blogs/screengrab/archive/2008/08/05/yesterday-s-hits-romeo-and-juliet-1968-franco-zeffirelli.aspx It’s not often these days that you get such a lengthy tribute to the “original” Romeo and Juliet on film, Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 version with Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey.  Worth a nostalgic look. (Yeah yeah it’s not the original, but it’s arguably the definitive screen adaptation.)

    Have to say, I think it is the best R&J on film – absolutely loved Mercutio.
    Romeo's bottom made something of a splash too with all the implications of 'sex' which people seemed to have missed before. (Now, will an upcoming King Lear reveal more?)
