If I remember correctly, Mr. Donat was in an educational series of films for the classroom as Hamlet in the mid to late 1960's. I remember using the films in my teaching college prep English literature. I don't know if the films used the 1964 CBS Look UP and Live performance. Maynard Mack may have narrated the series.
