Her Greatest Performance

Edith Craig in a short fragment of this lost crime drama.

Drama 1916 1 mins Silent


Only a minute survives of this crime drama, which featured three members of the great acting dynasty, the Terry family - the most famous, Ellen Terry, her daughter Edith Craig and her nephew Dennis Neilson-Terry. This fragment features Edith, who plays a theatre dresser on the trail of a murderer, here in some emotional turmoil. Given her lineage (John Gielgud was a younger member of the clan), it's not surprising that she gives a good performance - if not her greatest.
