Trivia

Herbert Beerbohm Tree reworked Fletcher and Shakespeare's play from one nominally about Henry VIII to one about Cardinal Wolsey, already really the main character in the drama - (the calculation is that only 53% of the original play is in Tree's version). Tree created a starring role for himself whilst giving each of his lead actors scenes where they featured - with him. This was carried over to the further abridged version that was filmed in 1911. That this dramatisation worked in the way Tree intended can be seen by the repeated references to Tree/Wolsey in contemporary reviews of the film, several writers particularly noting Tree's playing of Wolsey's scene with Cromwell and his farewell speech.
