This is basically all there is to this one-minute short film from 1900. It is 115 years old already, not bad. Of course, it is in black-and-white, but do not be fooled by the title. Yes it is a French movie, but it's not by Georges Méliès, instead by the pretty much unknown French filmmaker Clément Maurice. It is, as you may have guessed from the title, an adaptation from a Shakespeare work, but i must say without the title, it could also be a random scene of two guys fencing and one dying at the end. All in all, this is certainly not one of the best very early silent short films in my opinion. Pretty weak and the quality isn't helping either. Not recommended.
