From the movie "Hamlet", the Olivier Version. I default to that version, as it was the first one I ever saw and set a standard.But the others are good: the Russian one by Konsintev, the one with Nicole Williamson, even the Zefferelli version with Mel has some nice art direction and a great duelat the end, thanks to William Hobbs. And Branagh's is great, but a hard slog. But then no-one ever put the whole play on film before.
