I guess it’s a bit early for Joss Whedon’s just-opened “Much Ado About Nothing” to make the list, but I was surprised that the ingenious deconstruction of a classic text that is “Gnomeo and Juliet” got no recognition. Otherwise, the Shakespeare adaptations you picked are films that Will would have been proud to put his name on.
And, by the way, has anyone figured out how much he would have made in royalties from all the movies he gets credited for? Or from settlements of libel lawsuits for such films as “Shakespeare in Love” and “Anonymous”? If he were alive today he’d have his own studio.
