Vitagraph, 1908, Richard III

Vitagraph, 1908, Richard III, Act 1, Scene 2, Silent Fil

This clip of Richard III (1908) is taken from the series of very brief Shakespeare films which Vitagraph made at the start of the 20th  C. In addition to the over-compressed nature of the action, the characterizations now seems crude, but still effective.
