    "Here, in this last scene, Daniel, at death's door, is telling his old friend the Doctor how his brother unjustly suspected him of complicity in Genevieve's flight." L/S of stage set. Sarah Bernhardt lies in her sick bed whilst a man holds her hand. A conversation takes place between Sarah and the man who sits beside her bed. She throws up her hand. C/U of the actor playing the Doctor. "Daniel, I have sent for your brother... he must see you - at once..." C/U of the Doctor as he speaks to Sarah Bernhardt. L/S of the set as they act out the scene. A manservant comes into the room with a cup of tea but Sarah sends him away. She drinks from a glass instead - possibly medicine. C/U of Sarah and the Doctor. She clutches at her heart and looks distressed.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial - issue number unknown.

    Note: paper records and leader state was originally UN7J - this is not on our Index Database and is an odd number for our old system - mystery!

    Most of the missing material is probably to be found on EP295, item called "Unknown Play"

    Safety print only - original decomposed and destroyed.
