Here is a link to the movie from 1913 starring Charlie Chaplin. There is NOTHING in this film about ODJB, and the film is mediocre. The background music added to this film is nice, though.
As was said before, there seems to be another movie from 1917 with the same name, but I have not been able to find a copy anywhere.

Apparently someone has taken the trouble to write that synopsis - which suggests that the film still exists. Note that there is no mentioning here of the ODJB or its members.
In the "Story Of The Original Dixieland Jazz Band" by H.O. Brunn, "The Good For Nothing" is mentioned as a Chaplin Film - which it is definitely not.
A few years ago I read somewhere (I forget where) that somebody had seen the film, and he reported that there is absolutely no trace of the ODJB or indeed any band.
