Cast & Crew
Anna Q. Nilsson
The Reverend Philip Morton is devoted to the members of his congregation, who are unaware that many years before, at Harvard College, Philip had an affair with a seductive woman named Lillian Drew. Now Lillian is blackmailing Philip and, to cover up his indiscretion, he embezzles church funds to pay her. When Philip dies of heart failure, his friend David accepts the blame for the fraud. Prior to this, David wanted to be an author, but was rejected because of the lack of realism in his writing. He spends four years in Sing Sing and then spends several more years overcoming the stigma of prison. The police continue to harass David after he has been out of prison for many years until a secret admirer of his finally exposes Philip's guilt. Because of his experiences, David becomes a more realistic writer and, with the love and devotion of his loyal sweetheart Helen Chambers, he is able to fulfill his artistic dreams.
