Hedda Gabler

Ingrid Bergman as Hedda Gabler (1963)

For my money, the 1963 TV production holds its own against the National Theatre production, which I didn't enjoy. Was I irritated by the staging, the actors' mannerisms and body language, or by the popcorn eaters in our row?

I thoroughly enjoyed re-reading the play in my 1961 Penguin Classics reprint. Nothing to disturb or distract me.
