One third of the film survives at BFI
12 December 2002 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

The British Film Institute holds a partial first reel and a partial last reel to this film, footage equalling approximately 27 minutes. Otherwise the film is considered to be lost. No negative or other print materials exist in this country and it seems this material is all that exists anywhere in the world.
