It is really extraordinary that this exists: a 118-year-old silent movie scene from Shakespeare’s King John, portraying the death of the king.
This is the only surviving scene (of four). King John was being performed on the London stage at the time, with the great Shakespearean actor, Beerbohm Tree, in the title role. That’s him, taking forever to die, in the clip, attended by the Earl of Pembroke (J. Fisher White), Prince Henry (Dora Tulloch), who tries repeatedly to comfort his father, and Lord Bigot, Earl of Norfolk (unknown actor). I may have the earls reversed, though I try never to reverse my earls.
It is a wonderful piece of Shakespearana and theater history.
