Shakespeare & Hollywood

Think posthumous profits in the entertainment business, and you’re likely to come up with the names of Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley.

Most of the movie titles are direct descendants. Some - including “10 Things I Hate About You,” “A Thousand Acres” and the 1956 sci-fi classic “Forbidden Planet” - are not, although they are direct knockoffs.

The map above is selective. We couldn’t possibly fit all the movies and TV programs inspired by the bard into a single map.

We also suggest that you view the interactive Muckety map in the larger view, for more maneuvering room.
