Are You a Mason? is a 1915 silent comedy film produced by Adolph Zukor (Famous Players Film Company) and Charles Frohman and distributed through Paramount Pictures. The film was directed by Thomas Heffron and stars John Barrymore in his third feature-length film. This film is based on a famous 1901 play by Leo Ditrichstein and enacted on the Broadway stage by William Collier, Sr. in 1901. Barrymore started his stage career as a performer in some of the plays starring Collier and he probably performed this play off Broadway on tour. Several of Barrymores early screen comedies are renditions of plays that starred William Collier and had featured Barrymore as a supporting performer. Up and coming film hero Harold Lockwood appears in this film as he had in Barrymores earlier The Man from Mexico in 1914. This film was re-released by Paramount in 1919 under their temporary re-issue banner The Success-Series, celebrating some of the companies major early first successes of which this film was one. A 1922 remake was planned for Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle but dropped due to the Virginia Rappe murder scandal which ruined his career. The comedy was filmed again as a talkie in 1934. The silent film however is currently lost.
