The Vicar of Wakefield
1910 & 1917

This volume contrasts two versions of Oliver Goldsmith’s 18th century novel. Released in 1910 on one reel and again in 1917 on eight reels. It is a good study on the evolution of technique, style and story development in early film.

This set features an original organ score composed and performed by musician Raymond A. Brubacher, and a booklet containing a brief history of Thanhouser and notes on each film by Victor Graf..

Volume IV includes films released under the Thanhouser and Pathé banners:
