Shakespeare  In Francois Truffaut's Day For Night (1973) at the wrap party for the film within a film, the Severine characters tells the following story (I'm paraphrasing): "An actor had wanted to play Hamlet all of his life so eventually he put on his own production for himself to act in. He was so awful he was met with boos from the audience every night, until he eventually stopped during one performance, in the middle of the soliloquy, turned to the audience and said, "I didn't write this shit!' "
