Of the 3 films that Price considered his great British trilogy, this is by far the funniest. It is a mad laugh fest from opening to credits. Produced by Cineman and released 5 April 1973 in the US with United Artists distributing it to theaters, a insane Shakepearean actor, thought long dead, decides it's time for some pay back. He then proceeds to murder each priggish critic that had denied him a presticious award years back, Phibes style. Except that he plans his murder based on deaths (or near deaths) in Shakespeare plays.
Well I had a lot more stuff to say about this but I am having trouble with Google Blog editor. Maybe later.
