George Bernard Shaw, played by Donald Moffatt, analyzes Shakespeare's characterization of Julius Caesar and compares it with his own treatment. In Shaw's words, Caesar "has been praised and damned, lauded as the creator of a great political system, and decried as the destroyer of liberty and human dignity." Shaw claims the character of Caesar was beyond Shakespeare, but admits Shakespeare is still "king of the dramatists." From the EBE Humanities series

One in a series of twelve films in which the great French mime Marcel Marceau performs some works from his repertoire. In his introduction Marceau calls mime the essence of life and suggests that it can reach the soul through silence. In this pantomime he expresses life from the womb to the grave in a few minutes and illustrates one of the art's most notable characteristics - its ability to condense time and to create through time the pulse of humanity

One in a series of twelve films in which the great French mime Marcel Marceau performs some works from his repertoire. In his introduction he describes this pantomime as having a theme that goes beyond time, an allegory showing a man trying to escape an enclosure of invisible walls. He also suggests that it stands for our freedom of choice, stating that for the limited span of our life on earth, we must struggle for the enlightenment of humanity and search for a way out of the cage
