Southern California locations vividly suggest both elemental pre-Roman Britain and classical Rome. An energetic cinematic pacing and intimacy show rapidly improving narrative technique and realism well beyond the limitations of the stage. Especially cinematic are the bedchamber scene in the first reel, with its intimate cinematography and acting and special lighting effect, and the battle scene of the second reel, considered very effective in its day.

A well-staged, in the neo-realistic style of 19th century theater, well-acted, also in the same 19th century manner, silent filmed version of one of Shakespeare's lesser known works. I realized while watching this that without hearing his wonderfully descriptive dialogue it all seems like cluttered melodrama.
