This in itself is unremarkable: intertitles would be created in postproduction, need not correspond to those in the scenario, and could be omitted or added at will. The problem is that the scene in the film is performed in pantomime: no words (in intertitle or otherwise) are exchanged, and instead the Landlord indicates with a resigned parting of the hands that he has no room available, followed with a gesture to indicate the direction in which Joseph should go to find lodgings. Consequently, neither the scene text nor the dialogue text of the scenario corresponds satisfactorily to what is seen on the screen.

Dickson began preparations for a version of Rip Van Winkle, based on a stage adaptation by Joseph Jefferson of Washington Irving’s story. 20 This certainly makes Rip Van Winkle of historical interest and, although it is pushing the claim a little far, one might even accept that Jefferson’s play ‘survives—if not as a true screenplay—then certainly as an important film-related production text from 1896’. But Jefferson’s work was written for the stage; there is no evidence that he intended to translate it to another medium, or that either he or Dickson produced a new, written text from which Dickson worked in creating the film.
