Film background[edit]

This film was based on the British three volume novel (a standard of the time in Britain and England to separate a novel in three volumes) The Moonstone published in 1868 and which is highly regarded as one of the first English language detective crime novels. This film was remade in 1915; the oldest known version to exist. Other remakes were released in 1934, 1972, and 1997.
