Film: Richard III (Silent, 1912)

Richard III


Director: André Calmettes, James Keane

This is the oldest surviving complete American feature film, which predates Birth of a Nation by a year. Frederick Warde, who plays Richard, would travel around the country showing the film (since there were but few copies), explain it, and offer question and answer sessions to the audience on both the film, Shakespeare, and the play.
