Watch "Snooty, Snobby Smarty Pants," a fun outtake from the forthcoming award-winning film, "Behind the Name SHAKESPEARE: Power, Lust, Scorn & Scandal." A Christina di Marlo Film.
This documentary is cheeky, fun and sexy –qualities the genius known as Shakespeare adored – as it explores the question of his identity: tradesman or nobleman.
It examines the long-accepted authorship candidate – a small-town, illiterate businessman – against one astonishingly educated, high-ranking courtier, who also happened to be a not-so-secret consort of the Queen.
Entwined within this mystery were affairs within Queen Elizabeth’s intimate circle. Age-old human struggles of heart, soul and power: Affairs that had to be hushed.
Facts about these two candidates are juxtaposed here in a most alluring way, until common sense dissolves manipulated perceptions to reveal the supreme nobleman behind the greatest works of iambic thunder in the English language, the 17thEarl of Oxford, Edward de Vere.
