This is one of many film adaptations of the novel. It was filmed twice before in 1912 in England for Clarendon, and in 1915 for the American Biograph Company. Other later adaptations include 1934 and 1951 films, and 1990 and 2001 television movies.
In a contemporary review, Variety wrote, “Madge Bellamy has just the right wistful quality of beauty for Lorna…the histrionic honors, however, go to that best of character portrait makers, Frank Keenan, as Sir Ensor Doone…The scenic features of the picture have been splendidly managed. The stagecoach inn might have been lifted from an authentic print of the times. The spirited passage of the coach robbery on the seashore is a smashing bit of pictorial emphasis and the action in the robber’s village is scenically impressive.”
