    There is much that should be added to the Ramsey database, perhaps most importantly that she and Rudolph De Cordova scripted and may have performed in the first film actually shot during a theatrical performance. The BFI holds the print. This was The Bandits, a four-act spectacle staged at Hengler’s London Hippodrome in 1902. We don’t know who filmed this extract, but filming may have coincided with the Shah of Persia’s visit to the UK in August of that year. We know that the Shah attended a performance and that his other engagements were filmed both by Paul and Warwick.
