My Darling Clementine- Shakespeare Scene (1946)

In this clip from the 1946 film My Darling Clementine, a Shakespearean actor named Granville Thorndyke (Alan Mowbray) performs his art in the local tavern. The act doesn't go over well prompting Thorndyke to say as he leaves “Shakespeare was not meant for taverns nor for tavern louts”. This film starred Henry Fonda, Linda Darnell, and Victor Mature.
