Does this movie even still exist?
6 June 2001 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

We have all heard about this movie, the first film version of the famous novel. Supposedly it stuck very close to the stage version made famous by Richard Mansfield. It compressed the novel into 4 acts and even included a curtain which rose and fell at the start and finish of each act! Interestingly (ironically) Richard Mansfield died in 1907 a year before the first film version was made. No still from this version have ever been published and no historians claim to have seen it. Is it still out there somewhere?
