Film Quizzes: Shakespeare Adapations

I’ve been reading a bit of Shakespeare recently and as I haven’t done a film quiz for a while thought I should combine the two for a bumper post. His impact on literature, English theatre and popular culture has been extraordinary, so this film quiz was never going to be conventional. I’ve decided to break it into into two parts, faithful adaptations and those that were loosely based. Which half will you do better on? Do you have a favourite Shakespeare play?

Film Quizzes - Shakespeare Film 1  Film 1 (1940s)

Film Quizzes - Shakespeare Film 2 Film 2 (1990s)

Film Quizzes - Shakespeare Film 3 Film 3 (1990s)

Film Quizzes - Shakespeare Film 4 Film 4 (1990s)

Film Quizzes - Shakespeare Film 5 Film 5 (2000s)

Film Quizzes - Shakespeare Film 6 Film 6 (2010+)

And the loosely adapted

Film Quizzes - Shakespeare Film 7 Film 7 (1950s)

Film Quizzes - Shakespeare Film 8 Film 8 (1990s)

Film Quizzes - Shakespeare Film 9 Film 9 (1990s)

Film Quizzes - Shakespeare Film 10 Film 10 (2000s)

Film Quizzes - Shakespeare Film 11 Film 11 (2000s)

Film Quizzes - Shakespeare Film 12 Film 12 (2010+)
