Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein

"A living document of Oscar Wilde's famous story!" Thus labeled, Thanhouser's two-reel version of The Picture of Dorian Gray, starring Harris Gordon in the title role and Grace Fulton as the ill-fated Evelyn, was released in July of 1915 to mostly favorable reviews, the Moving Picture World pronouncing it "a strong presentation even though none of the familiar epigrams of the author find their way into the subtitles." According to contemporary accounts, the story was straightforwardly told, Thanhouser adhering closely to Wilde's original.
