The earliest of John Barrymore's films to survive
29 November 2004 | by (East Coast, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

TID(1915) is the earliest film of legendary actor John Barrymore to survive predating his better known RAFFLES THE AMATEUR CRACKSMAN(1917) & the famous DR JEKYLL & MR HYDE(1920). But for many years the sole surviving copy existed only in the possession of a private collector and he wouldn't part with or share his treasure for anything in the world. Since hardly anyone has seen this early Barrymore picture it's difficult to write a synopsis on it. The only still I've seen of this movie is from Daniel Blum's PICTORIAL HISTORY OF THE SILENT SCREEN. It's when Barrymore is greeting or saying goodbye to co-star Helen Weir as she enters or leaves a car and they're shaking hands.

Times nevertheless seem to have changed as THE INCORRIGIBLE DUKANE, for the first time, is listed as being available on home video from an obscure company called KAVEL video. Perhaps that collector has had a change of heart or has died and relatives opted for a preservation of the film. So Dukane seemingly can now be viewed by many of us waiting & curious silent film buffs.
