The first real effort but that's all.
25 January 2003 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Well, this was the first real effort to feature Oscar Wilde's immortal novel and therefore, an extremely rare piece, only for collectors. The opportunity to see this silent movie practically had been quite an experience. What irritated me was that Fred Durant and Rowland Talbot has changed the original course of the story in a number of times to incorporate it with a tinge of horror.

Henry Victor did not seem convincing as Dorian Gray, even in the scale of that era. Jack Jordan was rather good as Lord Henry. But director Durant often failed to focus him much, while he was the most important character of the real story. In all, this 1916 edition has only historical value, nothing else.
