...and could sing once  
Because in my brain, listening to DVD commentary of Greg Doran's Hamlet is relaxing, I listened to the commentary over a few days, mostly when I was eating dinner. For those of you who followed the whole "Andre Tchaikovsky's skull" saga* when the production was on in Stratford, the skull has also been immortalized (heh) in the film as well.

Plus it would probably not be much fun for the vegetarians in the cast, to be doused with animal blood. (Not that everyone else would be looking forward to it, obviously!)

And yes--that's probably true of human remains from a medical catalog. Though that might be even *odder* than acting with a skull from someone who'd wanted it used for that purpose.
