|Portrait of Paul Robeson as Othello|
A leading British Shakespearean critic, John Dover Wilson, called the performance of Paul Robeson the most notable Othello of the twentieth century.
|With Peggy Ashcroft|
|With Jose Ferrer and Uta Hagen|
After running on Broadway for 296 performances, longer than any previous Shakespeare play, the production made a lengthy and triumphant North American tour.
Robeson was truly a great actor, but I'm sorry to say I've only seen him in just a bit of The Emperor Jones when it was on TV one time. Have you ever seen any of his movies?
Thanks for visiting and have a great week!
