Richard III is a 55-minute film adaptation of Shakespeare's play, starring
Frederick Warde as the title character. The 1912 film, a French/U.S.
international co-production, was produced by Film d'Art and released through the
independent states rights film distribution system.
It is the oldest surviving American feature-length film, and is also thought to
be the first feature-length Shakespearean adaptation ever made. As early as
1922, the film was thought lost. It was not until 1996 that a print was
discovered, when William Buffum, former projectionist at the Bluebird Theatre in
Portland, Oregon, donated his copy to the American Film Institute. The AFI
restored the print, transferring it from its nitrate film stock and retouching
the hand tinting effect used in the original 1912 release.
On June 26, 2001, Kino International released the film on DVD, with a newly
composed score by Ennio Morricone, which was recorded at Music Village, Rome,
Italy on July 17-19, 1997.
Ennio Morricone (10 November 1928) composed and arranged the score of the movie.
He has made scores and soundtracks for more than 500 film and television
productions, making him one of the most influential and best-selling film
composers since the late 1950s.
This release is available in the Ennio Morricone Classic Soundtrack series and
will be strictly limited to 1,000 numbered copies on transparent vinyl.
