Edwin Thanhouser and Lloyd F. Lonergan, who wrote or supervised screenplays for hundreds of Thanhouser films, often turned to classic plays and novels for quality source material. THE VICAR OF WAKEFIELD was an enormously popular English novel for 150 years, offering a complex but accessible mix of Georgian English characters, situations, mores and manners. All this had to be simplified and distilled down to one reel of story, which was done better by Thanhouser than any other studio could have done.
