A fairly good adaptation of Hamlet, although it seemed very dense trying to get all the intrigues into the time the radio had. Still a good listen for all the famous quotes.

This doesn't directly relate to any of the info concerning CBS Mystery Theater, but it might be of interest to fans of the type of music that the show was famous for. In case listerners had thought that the style had died out of become forgotten, there is actually a composer in Estonia who is known for reviving the old-style music with base clarinet, etc. Hope this cheers up CBSRMT listeners who thought that this kind of music had died out long ago!
