  • Hamlet is a 1921 film adaptation of the William Shakespeare play of the same name starring Danish silent film actor Asta Nielsen. It was directed by Svend Gade and Heinz Schall. In this interpretation, inspired by Dr. Edward P. Vining's book The Mystery of Hamlet, Hamlet is born female and disguised as a male to preserve the lineage. Though a radical interpretation, the New York Times said this film, "holds a secure place in class with the best."
