The Man from Nowhere (1916) -- Lost Silent ?
13 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Although Dorenzo ( Joseph Granby ) murders Betty Herron ( Irene Hunt ), a jury convicts her brother James ( King Baggot ), and sentences him to life imprisonment. Then, after James saves the governor's life during a prison revolt, he is made a trustee and falls in love with the governor's daughter Ruth ( Helen Marten ), even though he has yet to meet her. Later, Ruth's brother Larry ( Johnny Walker ) comes to the warden for help in exposing a cardsharp, and the warden suggests James for the job. Temporarily released from jail, James goes to Larry's card game, where he introduces himself to Ruth as "the man from nowhere." When Larry points out the cardsharp, James recognizes him as Dorenzo. James skillfully reveals him to be a cheater, and then accuses him of murdering Betty. The two men duel with swords, and just before Dorenzo dies from a stab wound, he confesses to the murder. Then, freed from jail, James begins a romance with Ruth.

This 1916 silent crime/drama was produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company and directed by Henry Otto, starring King Baggot. The survival status of this film is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
