Shakespeare's classic tale of romance and tragedy. Two families of Verona, the Montagues and the Capulets, have been feuding with each other for years.

The Prince's speech during the funeral includes the line "I...too have lost a brace (i.e. a pair) of kinsmen." In this version, only one of the Prince's kinsmen (i.e. Mercutio) is killed. Count Paris, the Prince's cousin who is slain by Romeo in the play, is left very much alive in this version. This may indicate that the film was trimmed before release, and that the death of Paris was actually cut. The souvenir program given out when the film first played in theatres indicates that plans were originally made for Paris to be killed by Romeo, just as in the original play (there is a reference to "the graveyard where Romeo slays Paris").
