So hot a summer

When we say "King John," what's the first thing that springs to mind? "I find it intriguing," Scott Douglas notes, "that Shakespeare left out any reference to either the Magna Carta or Robin Hood - the two things modern folk recognize about John." Douglas is a well-respected actor and member
