Epsodes from the life of Elizabeth I, Queen of England (1533-1603), focusing on her ill-fated love affair with Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex This 1912 mini-masterpiece laid the groundwork for future feature-length films. Filmed more like a stage play with parts which begin and end with inter titles that explain all the action before it happens on the screen.
