ISO version perviously uploaded by grafxman available at:
although this version was done from a DVD I took out of the library (not from the other members files) as there were a number of requests for an AVI version.
The wife worked her magic with this one, using a two-pass programme to get a good bitrate out of it, and keep the file size managable. I thank her for her attempts (at using my usual software...can't quite get the hang of the programme she uses:-/) created a low bit-rate file that I just couldn't increase.


Lear is an aging King who wants to retire by abdicating to his three daughters. However, in an act of petty ego stroking, he asks them who among them loves him most. While two daughters eagerly toady to him, his one loving daughter, Cordelia, refuses play along with this foolish charade. In a rage, Lear exiles her along with his one loyal aide who dares to stick up for her. This foolish move works to Lear's sorrow as his two remaining daughters cruelly and gradually strip him of his status and possessions until he is rendered an insane hermit attended only by his fool. All the while, the illegitimate son of another lord is plotting his own ambitions while contributing to this tragic tale of ego and familial cruelty. Written by Kenneth Chisholm {[email protected]}
