One of the most shocking of all First World War-era “revenge” silent films has been newly constituted from the two existing prints and restored with color tints and a new music score. The movie focuses on a working class American of German descent who is so persecuted by his fellow citizens during the war that he enlists and goes to sea to fight his former countrymen. With Wallace Beery. “The most outspoken of all the vengeance films.” –Kevin Brownlow. Cleveland revival premiere. DCP. 70 min.
