Although the trivia for this film indicates it is supposed lost, it does turn up in a perfectly serviceable print in under of the Thanhouser dvds issued in 2007, credited with thanks to the Library of Congress.

Now that we've got that out of the way, is this any good? Alas, not much as a stand alone piece. Like many adaptations of classics in this era, this assumes familiarity with the work itself and is largely bound into the proscenium arch in its production.
