Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Filmed on location, Versailles takes place during the reign of France's King Louis XIII. The regal splendor of the interior and exterior of the palace at Versailles is enhanced by Pathe's decision to color-tint each scene. There is really no plot to speak of, just a series of scenes in which actors dressed as courtiers, and ladies-in-waiting bow and curtsy to one another. The final scenes show Versailles as it looks in the present day (1909, that is), replete with automobiles and tourists. The film was released on a split reel with the longer Pathe subject Robbed the Chief of Police.
