A Man's Sacrifice

Fritz Magnussen, 1918, 53 min
Colleagues Maurice and Charles are connected through a close friendship, as Maurice is engaged to Charles’ daughter Vera. Everything seems blissful, but Charles is hiding a terrible secret that he had gambled on the stock market and covered his loss by drawing up bills to the tune of hundreds of thousands in his son-in-law’s name. When Maurice realises what happened, he chooses to spare Vera from finding out the truth and save her father. While Vera unsuspectingly travels to Europe to visit her aunt, he pleads guilty and is imprisoned in the Erie Country Penitentiary.
