Shakespeare’s tragedy »Hamlet« remains one of the best-known plays ever written. The story has been filmed many times: among the most unusual screen versions is the one produced by Svend Gade and Heinz Schall, which was the biggest cinema hit of the year in 1921 Germany. The lead role was played by Danish actress Asta Nielsen.
