Cleopatra is a silent film created in 1912 by Helen Gardner and the Helen Gardner Picture Players. The film, in which Gardner stars in the title role, was based on a play written by Victorien Sardou. In a series of elaborately staged tableaux, it depicts Cleopatra (Gardner) and her love affairs, first with handsome fisherman-slave Pharon, then with Marc Antony. The film features lavish sets and costumes and at just over an hour, it was considered fairly lengthy.

Failed pilot for a proposed British Sherlock Holmes series starring John Longdon (Hitchcock's "Blackmail" and "The Skin Game") as Sherlock Holmes. Campbell Singer plays Dr Watson and the episode also features Walter Gotell (70s and 80s Bond pictures) as Luzatto. The story is based on the canonical adventure "The Man With The Twisted Lip".
