Famous Players
8 June 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This early example of "Famous Players in Famous Plays" -- the best known is Bernhardt in QUEEN ELIZABETH -- is interesting on several counts, and fails on other counts. James O'Neill, now barely remembered for being Eugene O'Neill's father, was a well-known actor, famous for playing the Count on stage for many years. He comes off as a fairly florid young man, within the realm of believability. However, other actors are clearly playing for the balcony. Another problem is the short length of the movie: an hour in 1912 was an enormously long production, but it leaves out so much of Dumas' book that it can only hit the highlights if it is to maintain continuity.

Fortunately, by and large, it does, thanks in large part to Edison veterans Edwin S. Porter and Joseph A. Golden.

Doubtless this must have been an exciting production in 1913 and an important step towards legitimizing films as an artistic medium. Today it largely is of historic interest.
