Thais (1917) is a silent film produced by Samuel Goldwyn, and based on the 1890 novel Thaïs by Anatole France. This film featured opera prima donna Mary Garden, making her film debut at the then-lavish weekly salary of US$15,000.[1] Other cast members include Lionel Adams, Crauford Kent, and Charles Trowbridge.[2] This film is considered "one of the most colossal flops in movie history, both artistically and financially".[3]

The novel was also filmed that same year in Italy as Thaïs.
