The Manxman (also known as The Manx-Man) is a 1916 British silent drama film directed by George Loane Tucker and starring Elisabeth Risdon, Henry Ainley and Fred Groves. It is based on the 1894 novel of the same name by Hall Caine.[1] A second silent adaptation, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, was released in 1929.[2]

Upon its release in England in December 1916, The Manxman was a financial and critical success. It was one of relatively few British films to also become a hit in the United States.[3][4] No copies of the film are known to exist, and The Manxman nitrate was destroyed by a fire in the 1965 MGM vault fire.[5]
