Edwin Thanhouser adapted Goldsmith's well-known novel to the screen twice. This first film produced in 1910 had to be simplified and distilled down to one reel of story, which was done better by Thanhouser than any other studio of his time. The second film, produced after Thanhouser affiliated with Pathe in 1916, was a feature-length film. The elaborate production includes incidents vividly remembered by the novel's readers, such as the green spectacles, the debtor's prison, the sham marriage and the burning of the vicarage
