It seems strange to even attempt a silent version of a Shakespeare play, but they frequently were made throughout the 1910s. This filming of King Lear had the advantage of starring Frederick Warde, who had played King Lear many times on stage. Warde also made an effort to act for the camera, and give some meaning to his gesticulations. This cinematic classic from 1916 has been lovingly restored and features an all-new soundtrack.
