This is a brief clip from the silent Sarah Bernhardt film "Queen Elizabeth" (1912).

In this sequence, Robert Devereux, the 2nd Earl of Essex is executed. Queen Elizabeth (Bernhardt) visits his corpse, and mourns for him.

There's a subplot involving a missing ring, which (in the context of the story) demonstrates Essex's fidelity to Elizabeth.

"Queen Elizabeth" was by far Bernhardt's most successful film.

Audio recordings of Sarah's voice can be found at the Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project website:
