A very interesting short (about 40 min) by Maurice Tourneur.
A man (Charles Vanel) wants his brother-in-law to be released from the insane asylum he's been confined to for years.Nothing sentimental:for his business,the guy needs money which the mentally sick has got.
The wife is scared:he tried to kill her for very obscure reasons.Actually ,he is a paranoid who thinks there are threatening conspiracies against him.
In the doctor's office ,we feel how this unfortunate man is a real head case.At home ,he's looking through his window:there are two men in the streets ,might they be ????When the night comes,the wife's terror rises..
The end is completely unexpected and proves how sublime paternal love can be!
