Edwin Booth Hamlet 1870

In the late 1940s, Hitchcock had plans to make a modernized version of the Shakespeare story. Hitchcock's Shakespearean vision was of a "psychological melodrama" (set in contemporary England, and starring Cary Grant in the title role).

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. Hitchcock's studio caught wind of a potential lawsuit from a professor who had already written a modern-day version of Hamlet.
