Hamlet starting back from the Ghost. Hamlet stands at left, feet wide apart, leaning back to left, away from Ghost at right. Hamlet has his sword drawn but the point is to the ground at left. He wears tunic and cloak. The Ghost at right faces left and holds his drawn sword high in the air above his head. He wears armour, a plumed helmet with the visor up and a cloak. A massive stone gateway stands at centre behind, and two walls running horizontally across the plane of the picture separate the platform in the foreground from the massive towers of the castle at rear. The caption states: 'Scene from HAMLET, As Performed at the Winter Garden, N.Y. - Hamlet Encountering his Father's Ghost, Act I, Scene 3. - Sketched by our Special Artist, Albert Berghaus.'
