This movie actually does survive,albeit in a peculiar form. I remember seeing it on TV a number of years ago with a humorous narration added may years ago, by the "Easy Aces", Goodman and Janet Ace. They did,according to Leonard Maltin, a number of short subjects consisting of ironic narrations over existing films like travelogues, etc. Their best apparently, was this one, using this version of "East Lynne". I remember the incongruity of Alan Hale cast as an English Lord. With the humorous narration, this was a very entertaining movie.Probably much more so than in its original form.The original play became something of a joke among stage actors.Typically, if one actor would make a remark to a second actor about what a terrible play the second actor's company was currently putting one, the second actor would wisecrack"Next week,we're putting on East Lynne", implying that that was REALLY hitting rock bottom!
