Sample text

The working of “reveal and cover” in this film are obviously quieter than the fiercely playful eruptions of incongruity that characterized later avant-garde experiments. Yet they gradually develop the quality of spookiness, of dream-revealed-inthe-ordinary, so valued by Surrealist filmmakers in particular. This effect is most intense in the scene at the canal. This scene breaks from shallow focus into depth along a perpendicular, in a way that suggests an explicit interest in the cinematic possibilities of the theatrical reveal.

If the work that I have been discussing can be seen as part of a larger project, initiated in 1951, of re-orienting the Henry IV plays so that they have been Hal-dominated rather than Falstaff-centred, and hence on the side of authority rather than licence, the evidence of performance history continues to suggest that audiences and practitioners have been far more willing to be seduced by the theatrical and ideological values associated with the fat knight than they have been eager to countenance the irresistible rise of Prince Henry.

Returning to his older daughter’s house, he is relegated to a seat by the window (frame right, medium shot) from which he struggles unsuccessfully to regain his former privilege. He escapes to the bleak canal where, as the inter-title tells us, he intends to drown himself. And he is restored in the closing scene, not to his central position but to the chair by the window—suggesting a conclusion less sanguine about the care on offer from the younger generation than the release notice in The Bioscope would have it.
