If you love Shakespeare and the BBC, then tomorrow would be a good time to celebrate the Bard's 450th birthday with these rentals! The rental prices are $1.99! So here's just some that you can rent:

These classic BBC productions starred many greats like Anthony Hopkins, Bob Hoskins, Helen Mirren, Claire Bloom, Derek Jacobi, and several other names. By the way Jacobi's performance of Hamlet is just as good as the great Olivier's performance. Just had to make note of that.

Each performance is roughly around between 2 hours to over 3 hours. Once again the price is only $1.99, and it's a 7 day rental. So if you would like to watch some BBC performances between the decades of the 70s to the 80s, then check them out.

Amazon also has other productions like David Tennet's "Hamlet," the popular "Hollow Crown," and on Prime there is the great documentary series, "Shakespeare Uncovered," Ian McKellan's "King Lear," and Kenneth Branagh's "Much Ado About Nothing." So take a look at Amazon for your celebration of William Shakespeare.
