Exists in fragments at the British Film Institute
31 July 2002 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

This early Alexander Korda effort is almost a lost film. Two lengthy fragments do exist within the British Film Institute archives. These total approximately 29.5 minutes, a third of the film's length. The start of the film (727 feet) and the end of the film (1757 feet)are in existence and being preserved - unavailable for public viewing.
