La Tosca

Viggo Larsen, 1908, 6 min

FRAGMENT | A courtly drama of a bridegroom arrested for being intimate with the queen. To secure his release, his future bride sleeps with his rival. The film is incomplete. Missing is the ending, where the bride obtains a forged letter of passage and murders the rival, but then has to watch as her betrothed is executed after the letter is found to be forged. The film includes a single rare hand-coloured scene.

The preserved material is a fragment.
