By the Gods!

A scene from ATHALIAH QUEEN OF JUDAH (1910)

I haven't seen this short movie but I presume this is the ending. A French silent film titled ATHALIE, or ATHALIAH in English, who was the daughter of Jezebel. She ruled Judah and her story is as fascinating, shocking and bloody as the one of her infamous mother. Based on a play by Jean Racine. I would really love to see this silent movie, even if it's a short movie (roughly 15 minutes).

The costumes. props and hair work certainly seem elaborate.
