Survives Incomplete
31 March 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Cornelius Brady ( Theodore Roberts ), an unscrupulous broker, offers bank treasurer Robert Granger ( George Gebhardt ) $100,000 to certify a worthless check for $700,000 after bank president Burton Temple ( Thomas Meighan ) has refused the check because of insufficient funds in Brady's account. When the transaction causes the bank to fail, Granger is sentenced to ten years in prison and Temple is indicted. Granger's wife Anne ( Laura Hope Crews ), under an assumed name, secures a position as Temple's secretary to prove her husband's innocence. When detectives hired by Brady uncover a letter that proves Brady's guilt, Anna destroys it, but after doing so, realizes that she loves Temple. However, she remains faithful to Granger, who escapes prison and tells her that he stole to provide her with luxuries. After Granger's mistress, Rose Fanchon ( Cleo Ridgely ), appears, Anna learns that the $100,000 was put in a trust for Rose, and that Granger made no financial arrangements for his family. When Granger is shot escaping the pursuing police, Anna is free to marry Temple.

This 1915 silent drama was based from the play The Fighting Hope by William J. Hurlbut, produced by the Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play Company and was stage actress Laura Hope Crews film debut. My search for the survival of this film shows an incomplete copy exists at BFI Institute in London.
