Page vs Screen: The Pleasure Garden (1925)

You know when you have this grand idea, this huge research project, for years, and you finally set out to start it. You set up a timeline. Start talking about it. Start doing research, and then _________________________________________ nothing. the book doesn't exist, it existed at some point, and there is documentation that the director read the novel, but biographies of the author don't always list a publicationd date, and no copy is to be found anywhere. I was sure a few films wouldn't have novels or stories, but to not be able to find the first novel had not crossed my mind. Therefore, we will proceed without it.
