A new video with Sarah Bernhardt playing on stage: Le Duel d'Hamlet

Just adding this video, recently uploaded on Youtube, to my post of the January 15th, 2008: Sarah Bernhardt and Eleonora Duse. Audiovisual Documents on the Net and an Extint Way of Playing.

Sarah Bernhardt playing Hamlet

This is the note coming with the video in Youtube:

"One of a series of films of stars of the stage produced for the Phono-Cinéma-Théâtre at the Paris Exposition of 1900. The films were synchronised with phonograph recordings although in the case of this film the recording (now lost) is believed to have been the sound effect of the sword clashes"
