One of the silent Shakespeare films made by Edwin Thanhouser. Because the Library of Congress print lacks credits, I've relied here on R.H. Ball's reconstruction of them. His comment that he could not even "guess" William Russell's role because of the "abundant whiskers" on the male actors sums up the difficulties of identification
