The sound has been found in the form of an old Edisonian recording cylinder. The cylinder was repaired, then Walter Murch ACE MPSE synced the film to the correct music in (I believe) 2002. Total running time is approximately 17 seconds.

It's a silent movie but it's also labeled as the 1st Shakespeare adaptation ! For me, it's a bit illogical ! Shakespare wrote plays so dialogues whereas here you have just the characters without their lines ! And for sure, as it's still 1 minute time, you can imagine that the action is very condensed ! I didn't read the play but watching those sixty seconds, i suppose King John is dying in company of dear friends and soldiers. But it's not peaceful as he seems very tormented, nearly crazy ! However to shoot a play was a bit intelligent back then because the camera still doesn't move and the stage is reduced to a big backdrop and a few props. So baby cinema was just like that: a play like in the real theater but with no sound!
