Video of the Moment: Oedipus Rex

So my kid has a test in Oedipus Rex tomorrow and they haven’t watched a movie version yet (ran out of time), so naturally I go looking for one and came up with this gem from 1968 … Christopher Plummer as Oedipus! Orson Welles as Teiresias!  Donald Sutherland is in the chorus!!! The picture quality is iffy at times (especially at the beginning), but it’s pretty good …

… and the listing from IMDB
