Innokenty Smoktunovsky as Hamlet in the 1966 film by Kozintsev.

Grigori Mikhailovich Kozintsev (Russian: Григорий Михайлович Козинцев; Kiev, 22 March (O.S. 9 March) 1905 – Leningrad, now Saint Petersburg, 11 May 1973) was a Soviet Russian film director.

He studied in the Imperial Academy of Arts and started making films in 1921. His silent features, including The Overcoat (1926) and New Babylon (1929), had a ring of Expressionism. Kozintsev is most renowned by his adaptions of William Shakespeare (King Lear and Hamlet) and Miguel de Cervantes (Don Quixote).
