Hallmark Just Because Free Card Friday Thru March 22First, a quick reminder today is Hallmark Just Because Free Card Friday Thru March 22 (3-01-2019).

My blog post title this morning is a bit lengthy; just don’t try to say the title out loud three times in a row fast! First, I’m including this refresher from my blog post: Thornton Wilder 1997 Stamp & The Ides of March (3-15-2016), it includes the following: “In The Tragedy of Julius Caesar by Shakespeare in Act I, Scene 2 it contains the famous quote with the Soothsayer: “Beware the ides of March.”

Brando as Mark Antony, and The Godfather today’s date tie-ins

In reading This Day in History, March 15, it includes both the Ides of March (44 B.C.) and the movie The Godfather (1972) was opening, I was looking up Julius Caesar movie from 1953 and came across it listing Marlon Brando playing Mark Antony.

Furthermore, there is an article from last year by Tony Sokol, Mar 15, 2018. Julius Caesar: Marlon Brando and the Ides of March. Joseph L. Manciewicz’s adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar put Marlon Brando in a Toga.”

“A set of five #2 pencils, wrapped with pages from William Shakespeare’s beloved classic, “Julius Caesar.” Each pencil has been hand wrapped by myself, and is standard length and sharpened. Please note that the pencils pictured are not necessarily the pencils that you will receive. 

These pencils will make great and unique gifts for anyone who is a fan of William Shakespeare!”
