Early film of Sir John Gielgud starring in Romeo and Juliet.
Title reads: "Presentation Novelty Romeo and Juliet performed at the Regent Theatre London."
Scenes from the play are performed by John Gielgud and Gwen Ffrangeon-Davies. There are no good C/Us of the actors - all filmed in L/S or M/S. We can see the acting styles though - very melodramatic. Gielgud is hardly recognisable.
The action is placed within a picture frame device for novelty effect.
Safety print exists.
