Storyline

Madame Goriot, wife of the wealthy manufacturer, is fatally injured when her carriage is overturned by runaway horses. Her friend, Madame Blanc, gains ascendancy over Goriot and his daughters, Anastasie and Delphine. Through her the girls meet two titled fortune hunters. Goriot sells his business and his home to make the marriage settlement. Refused a lodging in their new home, he enters a pension, where he is known as "Father Goriot." The only brightness in his life is the kindness of Eugene and Victorine, two young lovers who live in the house. Anastasie and Delphine appeal to their father for money, and he sells his little annuity. Dying, he sends Eugene for his daughters. They are going to a ball and have no time to see their father. Eugene bursts into the ballroom and denounces Anastasie and Delphine. They hasten to Goriot's bedside, but he turns away from them and dies. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
