Burton's performance (and the rest of the cast) make the Olivier Hamlet seem like a long boring sermon. The sound is that of a relic from the 1960's and isn't that bad for all that. We might as well complain that the Book of Kells illuminator sometimes colored outside the lines or that a painting isn't as precise as a photograph. I had it in an LP (if you remember what those were) and in a video, but the sound recording is the absolute best. When it's over, I start it again because without it, of course, "... the rest is silence."
