HORROR IN SILENT FILMS: A FILMOGRAPHY, 1896-1929 (McFarland, 1996)
contains references to two silent Frankenstein films: Monster of
Frankenstein (1920, dir: Testa) and Frankenstein (1910, Edison
production, dir: Dawley).

The book includes a photograph from the 1910 production which starred
Charles Ogle as the monster. It claims that prints of the film do exist
and clips have been shown on television. Its probably a long shot finding
a videotape of it.
