Film-England's Shakespeare (London, Midland and Scottish Railway, 1939)

(0)
England’s Shakespeare was made by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway to promote travel to Stratford-upon-Avon. The area was served very well by the LMS railway so it made sense to adopt a Shakespearean focus. A textbook-type film, it wasn’t intended as a cinematic masterpiece, rather as straightforward advert to entice new passengers to visit the Bard’s hometown.
