Format: DVD
For people not familiar with Shakespeare or just have a cursory knowledge of Shakespeare, This is a perfect introductory to most of the plays. For those people who know most of the major Shakespeare plays. This is a perfect introductory to some of the more less well-known Shakespeare plays.

The focus of this presentation as you can see from the title "Shakespeare's Women" focuses mostly on the women's roles, many of which were played by Claire Bloom herself. We are lucky to have Claire Bloom is the narrator and introducer as whom else would know better of the evolution of Shakespeare plays, then Claire Bloom?

Another great advantage of this presentation is just having Claire Bloom as the single narrator instead of a whole bunch of sound bites were we bounce off of one so-called expert to the next so-called expert and back again and back again.

Many of the film clips are from movies and recorded plays that I have seen but there are quite a few were new to me and I am not sure where I can get them. This alone is worth purchasing this documentary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Somehow I expected more 19 Aug. 2013

Ms Bloom is an extremely talented actress yet somehow this film did not work for me. It did not seem to have much flow and I was disappointed in the various sections taken out of context. Not my favorite piece of work.
5.0 out of 5 stars What an unexpected pleasure. Enjoy! 14 Aug. 2016

Claire Bloom's talent, and understanding of Shakespeare's oeuvre was evident throughout this fascinating survey of the women of Shakespeare's plays. I for one had no idea of the breadth of her experience on the stage. ( I can only hope to come across some of the productions shown in clips, particularly the early Richard Burton Hamlet with Miss Bloom.)

The format of this survey ran from early black & white clips of classical actresses such as Sarah Bernhardt, interspersed with clips from Miss Bloom's own notable career, her enthralling one woman interpretations of both popular roles such as Juliet, Gertrude and Portia to much less well-known but meaty roles such as Volumnia and Lady Constance, and an insightful interview.

I feel lucky to have found this gem, and feel my viewing has left me with a better understanding of both Shakespeare and this luminous and intelligent actress.
