Maggie Smith's awe-inspiring talent is on display in these four films adapted from works by William Shakespeare, George Bernard Shaw, Alan Bennett and Tennessee Williams. She performs with Frank Finlay in Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice" (1972), with Tom Baker in Shaw's "The Millionairess" (1972), and with Natasha Richardson in Williams' "Suddenly Last Summer" (1993). Finally, Smith acts alone in the monologue "Bed Among the Lentils" (1987), penned by Alan Bennett specifically for her. This 3-disc set is a must-have for any fan of Dame Maggie Smith.
