A print exists in the George Eastman House

After her initial six silents spanning 1915-1920, Jeanne Eagels became a Broadway legend, creating the role of Sadie Thompson in RAIN. After conquering Broadway she returned to Hollywood. This silent film is one of three she made before she died of heroin overdose. A print is housed in the George Eastman House, Rochester, N.Y. Her second film THE LETTER is the only extant talkie of Ms. Eagels (JEALOUSY is a "lost" film.) Interesting to note that Bette Davis went on to do remakes of both THE LETTER and JEALOUSY (renamed DECEPTION).
