  • Additional Credits: Fisher White (Adam), George Moore Marriott (Dennis), Lionel Braham (Charles), Austin Trevor (Le Beau), Cyrril Horrocks (First Lord), Ellis Irving (Second Lord), Lawrence Hanary (Third Lord), Joan White (Phebe) Different sources credit both Stuart Robertson and Gavin Gordon with playing the role of Amiens. Leon Quartermaine is credited as Dialogue Supervisor, in addition to his role as Jaques. The picture opened in London on September 3, 1936 with Elisabeth Bergner getting the star billing. In 1949, United Artistes re-released the picture. This time Laurence Olivier got the star billing. Laurence Olivier studied wrestling while preparing for the role of Orlando. During production Olivier was playing Mercutio in John Gielgud's production of Romeo and Juliet and spent 14 weeks going from the sound stage in the afternoon to performing on stage at night. The text of the play has been edited to fit into a 96 minute format. Touchstone's and Jaques' parts were reduced to small feature roles. The "All the world's a stage..." monologue, however, was retained in full. There are discrepancies with regard to the screenwriting credits for the picture. Robert J. Cullen is credited with "Scenario" in two Variety reviews: on September 16, 1936 and November 11, 1936. The November 16th review, however, credits Carl Mayer with "Adaptation" while New York Times credits Cullen with "Adaptation." Also, Variety says the "treatment is sugested by" J. M. Barrie in the September review and "Adaptation Suggested by" in the subsequent November review. The New York Times omits Barrie and Mayer altogether.
