Subject:        Benson's Running Time

Just to get it on the record: there is some disagreement about the
running time of the 1911 film version of the Benson Company's *King
Richard III*.  Trewin and Collick both give it as 30 minutes.  McKernan
and Terris have it at 15 minutes.  The version on the BFI video runs 23
minutes.

I have penciled notes to this effect in the margins of my books.

All the best,
Mike Jensen
