Did You Know?


The publicity campaigns for "Henry VIII" in The Isles, Australia and New Zealand made great use of Herbert Beerbohm Tree as a selling point: in posters and newspaper and periodical advertisments his name appeared first, often in larger typeface than the other leading actors. The film was effectively flagged in marketing literature, and in newspaper and periodical editorial as Tree and his theatre's film, rather than that of the production company, Barker Motion Photography and the co-producer and co-director, William Barker (the credited co-author of the original play William Shakespeare was not promoted in this way - sometimes not being named at all). The use of these promotional techniques, highly developed for use in the theatre, was an innovation for English films; they had one effect not really understood at the time, understandably, nor later, less understandably: Herbert Tree became England's first film star.
