Contemporary review from The Scotsman - Tuesday 11 May 1915
4 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

CINEMA HOUSE . Historical incidents associated with our own and other countries have been admirably depicted by the cinematograph. What is regarded as one of the finest of these historical productions is "Jane Shore ," which, in addition to its other merits , has the recommendation that it is entirely a product of British enterprise and industry in film-making . Painstaking care has characterised the production of the film, as the many fine scenes with which it abounds clearly show . An indication of the lavish scale on which the film, which comes from the "Barker Motion Photography (Limited), is produced, is to be had in the fact that it cost over £10,000, no fewer than 5748 artistes took part in it, and in one scene 3500 people participated. The period with which the story of "Jane Shore" deals is that of the Wars of the Roses and the stirring episodes of that eventful time. The romantic story of Jane Shore and Edward II., the historic events in which famous personages participate, the gorgeous scenes, the pageantry of the streets, and other features too numerous to mention, combine to make an excellent film. The acting throughout is natural, the costumes are appropriate to the period o of the story, and care has been paid to every detail. The battle scenes are fine examples of what can be accomplished by the cinematographer's art . The film is being shown this week at the Cinema House, where it was witnessed yesterday afternoon by a large attendance of visitors.
