New Anonymous film trailer posted on YouTube

A second film trailer for Roland Emmerich's film, Anonymous, was posted on YouTube August 5, 2011. Emmerich's historical thriller about the Shakespeare authorship controversy is scheduled for wide-release in the U.S. October 28, 2011. A preview will be screened on Sept. 7, 2011 in downtown Portland, Oregon as part of the Shakespeare Authorship Research Centre's annual conference September 6-9, 2011. Anonymous will also be featured at the Toronto International Film Festival to be held September 8-18, 2011.


Emmerich's film has Stratfordians aflutter, fearing examination of the traditional attribution of Shakespeare's plays may damage the brand.

Warren creates index of Oxfordian newsletter and journal articles

Sailors in the Shakespeare authorship sloop are an independent crew used to charting their own course, but even among this notoriously self-confident coterie, James Warren astounds us with his initiative.

The Sacramento native has lived overseas for the past 20 years, most recently in Pakistan and Vietnam, serving as a Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. Department of State. When he became interested in the Shakespeare authorship mystery, he created a tool that he needed for his research. Warren explains: I became aware of the authorship issue about five years ago, and since then focused on acquiring and reading many books on it and Edward de Vere. I hadn’t paid much attention to the (Shakespeare Oxford Society and Shakespeare Fellowship websites. . . . However, after joining the SOS and SF earlier this year, in March I learned about the SOS newsletter, SF’s Shakespeare Matters, The Oxfordian, Brief Chroniclesand other publications all at the same time, and was almost overwhelmed by t…
